Katrin Glatz Brubakk is a Clinical Child Psychologist and Assistant Professor at NTNU. With a passion for working in refugee contexts, she has dedicated the past eight years of her career to fieldwork in various regions. Katrin has provided support and assistance to refugees in Egypt, Congo, Turkey, and on a rescue boat in the Mediterranean. Notably, she has visited the Moria refugee camp in Greece on twelve occasions.
Katrin's deep engagement with the realities of life in Moria led her to write a compelling book that delves into its history, the experiences of its residents, the political dynamics, and the psychological consequences of living in the camp. Her book offers a unique perspective and sheds light on the complex challenges faced by those living in such circumstances.
Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Katrin has taken on a leadership role as the head of the "Moriabevegelsen" in Norway—a campaign aimed at evacuating the children from the Moria camp. Through her advocacy and efforts, she seeks to provide a voice for those who are most vulnerable and to bring attention to the pressing need for action and support.
With her extensive experience, academic expertise, and unwavering dedication, Katrin Glatz Brubakk is making a significant impact in the field of refugee assistance, amplifying the voices of those in need and working towards creating a more compassionate and just world.
