ADRES Best Young Paper Award
Thanks to the support of ADRES (Association pour le Développement de la Recherche en Économie et en Statistique) we will from 2020 onwards deliver a prize each year for the best article published in Annals by young authors. The prize will be awarded by a jury of international economists. Two criteria are necessary for an article to be eligible:
- All authors should be below the age of 40 years at the time of submission.
- No author should be the Ph.D. supervisor of another author.
The prize has been set at 2,000 € for the article ranked first (If two articles are ranked first the prize fund could be increased). The prize will be awarded in February for an article published during the previous year.
The 2021 prize has been awarded to Benoît Schmutz (CREST, École Polytechnique), Modibo Sidibé (Duke, U.), and Élie Vidal-Naquet (AMSE, Aix Marseille U.) for their article “Why are Low-Skilled Workers less Mobile ? The role of Mobility Costs and Spatial Frictions”, Annals of Economics and Statistics, no. 142 (June 2021), pp. 283-304.
The jury was presided by Alfred Galichon (NYU et ScPo) and was composed of Arthur Charpentier (UQUAM), and Arnaud Dupuy (U. Luxembourg), and Isabelle Méjean (ScPo).
The 2020 prize has been awarded to Maxime Menuet (U. of Orléans) for his article
“Is a Long War Desirable? Optimal Debt Concessions in Attrition Warfare.” Annals of Economics and Statistics, no. 139, 2020, pp. 105–130.
The jury was presided by Bernard Salanié (Columbia U.) who decided with the help of Joe Altonji (Yale U.) and Albert Marcet (UPF and Barcelona GSE).
