Íñigo Macías

Íñigo Macías

Research Coordinator, OXFAM Intermón


With a strong background in economics and specialised on international development and cooperation issues, I have over 10 years of professional experience as researcher, advisory, consultant, and project/programme manager both in the private and the public sector. I have also experience in project planning, implementation and evaluation, conference design and management and team coordination as well as public speaker and trainer.

My research interests are in the fields of governance, fragile states, economic development, tax and inequality, and aid architecture and effectiveness.

Fieldwork experience in different regions: Andean region, Central America and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Experience of working with international institutions including collaborating with donor governments, ECLAC, UNDP-Art, the IADB and philanthropic foundations and NGOs.

My objective is to be involved in policy-relevant research and analysis concerning development and international cooperation. I hope to continuously learn and widen my knowledge, and to have opportunities to promote change in developing countries as well as in the way richer countries engage with poorer ones.
