His current research explores the link between foreign aid and migration. His contribution to MEDAM focuses on the impact of Official Development Assistance on emigration flows in developing countries.
Before joining the MPC, Mauro Lanati was a Max Weber Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS). He was awarded a European PhD in Economics, Doctor Europaeus, at the University of Pisa under the supervision of Prof. Giorgia Giovannetti (EUI and University of Florence) with a thesis on International Trade. He was a visiting scholar at the University of British Columbia and he has participated in several research projects on development finance and migration studies for many international institutions, such as FERDI in Clermont-Ferrand (France) and IEMED in Barcelona (Spain). Some of these collaborations culminated in recent publications in volumes, such as ‘Financing development in risky contexts’ in Financing sustainable development by addressing vulnerabilities (2015) edited by Boussichas, M., and Guillaumont, P. and published by FERDI in collaboration with the EUI and IHEID.
