LAGV - Presentation

Since their creation in 2002, The journées Louis-André Gerard-Varet  has become one of the biggest conference in public economics in the world. It gathers every year about 200 scholars coming from all over the world that give keynote lectures, present their papers and exchange their ideas on all fields of public economics during three days.

This conference was created in memory of the French economist Louis-André Gerard-Varet (1944-2001) who played a very important role both as a scholar (in game theory, public economics and macroeconomics) and as a developper of local institutions (he has been the director of GREQE and GREQAM and was the founder of IDEP). Louis-André was also a great contributor to the development of the academic community both in France and in Europe, by being the President of the Association of South European Theorists (ASSET) and the French Economic Association (AFSE).
