About the speaker

Jérôme Sgard is a Columbia-Sciences Po Alliance Visiting Professor. He studied at Sciences Po Grenoble and received  a PhD in Economics from the Université Paris 10 Nanterre. He first worked at the Société Générale bank, later moving as a senior researcher to Centre d’études prospectives et d’informations internationales (CEPII), in Paris, and as a Professeur associé at Université de Paris Dauphine. He joined Sciences Po and CERI in 2008, first as a Research Professor then (2012) as a Professor of Political Economy.

During the 1990s he worked on economic reforms in Eastern Europe and Russia, and on financial crisis in emerging economies (L’Economie de la Panique, 2002). Since then his research interests have shifted to the architecture and crisis of markets as seen from the perspective of their micro-regulators: judges, arbiters, bureaucrats. This covers for instance the case of IMF policies vis-à-vis sovereign debts; private bankruptcies; or the development of early industrial policy in 19th century France. He is also starting a joint project on the history of international commercial arbitration over the course of the 20th century.
