Academia / Research


Silvana is the GDB Project Director as well as the Research and Policy Director of ILDA. She holds a PhD from University of Tasmania, Australia. She also holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand and a degree in Political Science from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina). She has served as a consultant for several international organizations, governments and civil society groups. In the past few years she has focused her work on the intersection of data and inclusion.

In early 2017, ILDA began an exploratory study to understand how changes in the production and use of data might contribute to understanding and ultimately fighting femicide in Latin America and the Caribbean. ILDA designed an action-research methodology to assess the problem, to understand how working with data could contribute to a solution, and to establish recommendations for governments in the region. ILDA’s regional standard of data on femicide/feminicide, led by Silvana Fumega, has had initial support from the International Development Research Center (IDRC), the Avina Foundation and, in its second stage, from the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB).
