Andrea Milan

Andrea Milan is Head of the Mobility Data Lab at IOM GMDAC. The Lab was created in 2023 and it aims to deliver high-quality, timely and data-driven analysis of mobility patterns and how they relate with broader socio-economic, political and demographic processes, with the ultimate goal to offer meaningful and forward-looking insights to policymakers and practitioners in the migration field. In its first year, the Lab focuses on climate mobility data as well as on data-driven whole migration corridor analyses.

At GMDAC, Andrea was until recently the Data Manager for the Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) Initiative. Prior to joining GMDAC, Andrea has worked in the field of international migration for a number of UN entities: the UN University (UNU-EHS), UN Women, the Office of the UN Special Representative (SRSG) for International Migration, and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Andrea's areas of expertise include migration governance, migration data, migration and development, gender and migration as well as migration, environment and climate change. He has published extensively on migration-related issues.

Andrea Milan holds a PhD in Governance and Policy Analysis from UNU-Merit and the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance (the Netherlands) as well as an MS in Economics from the University of Ferrara (Italy). During his studies, he was a scholarship-awarded exchange student at the University of Birmingham (UK) and Middlebury College (US), and a visiting scientist at Sussex University (UK).
