Verónica Boix-Mansilla, is a Principal Investigator at Project Zero. An international expert in global and intercultural education, her research examines conditions that enable individuals to understand and take action on the most pressing issues of our times (migration, sustainability, climate change) through transformative pedagogies.

Verónica's research portfolio focuses on quality interdisciplinary education and assessment; the development of global and intercultural competence, and the healthy integration of immigrant-origin children and their peers in today’s migration societies. In each case she works closely with educators in schools, museums, districts and policy circles to advance conceptual frameworks, practices, and tools able to shift educational mindsets. Verónica’s research integrates insights from learning science, pedagogy, anthropology, sociolinguistics, and philosophy. Her most recent projects "Re-Imagining Migration PZ" and "Languages for Relating" invite educators to re-think their practice to prepare our youth for super-diverse pluralist societies.

Verónica co-led the development of the OECD PISA Global Competence International Assessment framework as well as key global and intercultural frameworks at Harvard Project Zero, Asia Society, Council of Chief State School Officers. She works nationally and internationally with institutions such as the OECD, UNESCO, the International Baccalaureate, the DC Public Schools, the National Gallery of Art, National Geographic, AFS International, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting to advance research-based education innovations for an interconnected world on the move. She has received multiple awards including a Doctorate Honoris Causa from the International University of Catalunya
