Marion Guillaume is Head of the Children and Youth Pillar at Samuel Hall. She has been conducting research on humanitarian and development-related questions since 2011, with her primary interests and experience lying at the intersection of issues of protection, education, and migration, and how they impact this particular demographic group. She has conducted research at this intersection for organisations ranging from IOM, UNHCR, and NRC to UNICEF and Save the Children, leading innovative, participatory and do-no-harm research design, methodological approaches, and primary and secondary data collection in East and West Africa as well as Afghanistan. Marion takes a keen interest in ensuring that the findings from her research reach a broader audience, by building linkages to policy and academia, authoring policy briefs utilised by partners for advocacy and more. Prior to joining Samuel Hall, Marion worked in strategy consulting, primarily at Capital One, and conducted research on urban mobility and inclusive development in the Philippines. Marion holds an AB in History from Harvard University and an MA in International Affairs (with a specialisation in International Public Management and migration) from Sciences Po Paris.
