NADEEM LALA

Currently a 2nd year student of the Master’s in International Development programme at Sciences Po, Paris, gaining a BSc Economics degree from the University of Warwick has shaped my academic and professional approach. In particular, working as an Analyst at Voluntas Policy Advisory has allowed me to realize the importance of the intersection between data and public policy through a diverse range of development projects in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region. 

Quote: I believe that furthering research on reducing inequalities is one of the best ways to go from theory to implementation when conceptualising development solutions.
