From ENS to ENS

Esther Duflo, ENS alumna (class 1992), professor at MIT, a co-founder and co-director of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) is starting a teaching and research residency at ENS Paris and at Paris School of Economics this academic year (2020/2021).

The entire ENS community will benefit from the expertise and incomparable experience of this eminent researcher.


Inaugural lecture of the Ecole normale supérieure by Esther Duflo

On September 15 (5pm), Esther Duflo will hold a discussion with Daniel Cohen, director of ENS economics’ department. During this inaugural address, to mark a new academic year at ENS, she will track down false evidences on some of the most pressing issues of our time: immigration, free trade, growth, inequalities or climate change. In the face of booming inequalities, political disasters and environmental riscks, the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences is convinced all is not lost.

Her lesson (in French) will echo her latest book, co-written with researcher and Nobel Prize winner Abhijit V. Banerje: Good Economics for Hard Times (PublicAffairs, Nov. 2019).
