Giuseppe Savino is a specialist in migration policies. He builds on his experience in the field of South Asia’s labor migration to propose implementable solutions addressing dysfunctionalities affecting migrants’ recruitment processes. With over thirty years of professional experience in investment banking and financial markets, he shifted his area of expertise to migration policy in 2014, mainly by developing financial solutions for migrants with a view to reducing the cost of migration. He is the founder of ‘Migration Protocol’, a consultancy firm specializing in migration.
As a labor migration consultant, he has worked with UKAid Nepal, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) both in Nepal and Bangladesh, and with other major national and international migration stakeholders. His work addresses topics ranging from migration market inefficiencies leading to over- indebtedness and destitution to migrants’ socio-economic reintegration in their country of origin. As a policy advisor, he has worked closely with various governments to develop improved migration regulation, including cost reduction and positive use of remittances.
He has a Postgraduate Degree in International Politics obtained with Magna Cum Laude (Grande Distinction) at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and a university degree in economics from the Centre Universitaire Luxembourgeois.
