Erik holds an MSc in Political Sociology from the LSE, but his political formation took place in the streets of Athens, during the demonstrations and square occupations that built up and dashed his hopes for European solidarity. He has worked in the Euro-bubble for two years as a project manager, while also assisting in the coordination of DiEM25 as Deputy Volunteer Coordinator and contributing to the establishment of the movement in Belgium.
