Distinguished Fellows

In 2019, CEPR established a new category of affiliation. CEPR Distinguished Fellows are eminent economists who enjoy a high standing in the profession.

Distinguished Fellows have typically had a research career; have held office in high level policy institutions; and have rendered service to CEPR and the profession. Appointments are effective for a period of six years, renewable. 

Distinguished Fellows can participate in research and policy conferences and advise CEPR leadership.
