2 January 2019
The JEEA editorial board welcomes Imran Rasul as new Managing Editor of the Journal of the European Economic Association
From 1st January Imran Rasul takes over as Managing Editor of the Journal of the European Economic Association (JEEA), for a four year term.
The Journal publishes articles of the highest scientific quality in theoretical and empirical economics, and is committed to promoting the ambitions of the EEA, the development and application of economics as a science, as well as the communication and exchange between teachers, researchers and students in economics.
Professor Rasul repaces Juuso Valimaki who was thanked by the EEA for his services, energy and dedication over the past few years.
Imran said of the appointment; "It is an honour to be asked by the EEA to take on this role. I am looking forward to leading a great editorial team, with the aim of building on JEEA’s position as one of the foremost general interest journals in economics.”
Head of UCL Economics Professor Antonio Cabrales said “Imran has a very strong spirit of public service for the profession. He has already been co-editor at both the Review of Economic Studies and the Journal of the European Economic Association, which together with the Economic Journal are the most important economic journals in Europe. He now steps up this commitment by taking over as managing editor at the Journal of the European Economic Association. Beyond its importance for the economics discipline, it is also a sign of his, and UCL’s, commitment to remain a strong member of the European academic community.”
