Melissa Mouthaan

I work in education and curriculum research at Cambridge Assessment, having joined the research department in early 2020. My past work experience includes working for Oxfam GB, UNESCO, and as a consultant for the European Commission in research and communications capacities, in the fields of education and migration.

I completed my PhD at the Centre of Development Studies, Cambridge University in May 2020. My PhD focused on the EU's cooperation with West African countries in migration and I conducted fieldwork in Senegal, Ghana and Brussels in 2017-2018. My thesis examines the politics of migration policy formulation and the ability of African countries to shape migration governance agendas.
