Hannah Markay

Research, Evaluation and Learning Officer

Almost a year after completing an internship with Generations For Peace Institute (GFPI), Hannah Markay joined Generations For Peace in a full-time position as GFPI’s Research, Evaluation, and Learning Officer. Her central roles are to contribute to innovation in peacebuilding research; to develop and pilot new evaluation frameworks in close collaboration with the Institutional Learning Team and Programmes Department; and to strengthen knowledge management and institutional learning channels throughout the Generations For Peace.

Hannah is a dual US/UK citizen who grew up in the US, Lithuania, Italy, and the UK. She has worked with refugees and other groups with emphasis on human rights, peacebuilding, and community initiatives in Nicaragua, Chile, the UK, Italy, and Lebanon. Before returning to GFP, she worked with Mediterranean Hope on the island of Lampedusa and with the Humanitarian Corridors project in Lebanon.

Hannah completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Edinburgh and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in Social Anthropology and Politics and her Master’s at the University of Oxford in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies.

She enjoys hiking, anything involving bodies of water or music, and questioning what it means to be a hospitality-accepting vegetarian.
