About Jacques Drèze#

Jacques Drèze, a long-standing member of Academia Europaea (since 1989) passed away on Sunday, September 25, 2022, in Verviers at the age of 93.

Jacques Drèze
Professor Jacques Drèze

Jacques inspired generations of economists, through his rigorous research (e.g. on economic uncertainty, general equilibrium theory, unemployment and disequilibrium economics), as a creator and director of the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE), initiator of the European Doctoral Program in Quantitative Economics (EDP), founding father of the European Economic Association (of which he served as the first President in 1985), and professor at Université Catholique de Louvain and Cornell University. 

Jacques combined academic excellence with an open-door approach and empathy for the personal challenges of students and colleagues seeking his advice. He has been an exemplary role model for economists as well as economic policy professionals. 

Jacques will be missed immensely.
