This year’s Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel has been awarded to Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer, for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty.
All three are longstanding and highly active CEPR Fellows. Abhijit and Michael both joined the Development Economics Programme when it was established by CEPR in 2006. Esther, together with Robin Burgess, was the first DE Programme Director between 2006 and 2015, and is also a Fellow of the Public Economics Programme.
Esther was the second economist featured in our Women in Economics series, which shines a light on high quality research and policymaking from female leaders in their field.
The work that they have done in the field of experimental-based research into problems affecting some of the poorest sections of the world’s population is genuinely life-changing and life-saving and they richly deserve the recognition they have received.
Goethe University, Frankfurt
This project originated from the Women in Economics - WinE Committee - (WinE) of the European Economic Association (EEA), in accordance with its objective to collect data on the status of women in the economics profession in Europe. The data collection was taken further, with financial support from EEA, by WinE Committee member, Guido Friebel, Goethe University Frankfurt, and Sascha Wilhelm, Goethe University Frankfurt. To increase the transparency about the quantitative representation of female researchers in European Economics, Friebel and Wilhelm gathered information from all institutions known to them. They have developed an algorithm that repeatedly collects the data that are publicly available on the institutions' websites.
