Background

​Dr Jessica Hagen-Zanker is a Senior Research Fellow at ODI, leading the institute's migration research.  She holds a PhD in Public Policy from Maastricht University. Jessica's research focused on understanding how migration, economic and social policies affect migrant decision-making, impacts of migration on migrants and their families and the interlinkages between migration and social protection, drawing on mixed methods and covering a diverse range of countries, including Albania, Ethiopia and Nepal. 

Jessica closely collaborates with PRIO on the EC funded five-year MIGNEX project which seeks to contribute to more effective and coherent migration management through evidence-based understanding of the linkages between development and migration. Jessica leads on the survey of 12,500 respondents, as well as the impact maximisation work package.
