Emmanuelle Auriol studied Economics at Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) where she received her PhD in
1992. After spending one year at the University of California at Berkeley as a post‐doc she joined the Economics
Department at TSE. She became a full professor in 1996 after succeeding the French national aggregation
contest and went to the University of Aix‐Marseille II where she spent two years. Since 1998 she has been a full
professor at TSE.
Her research interests include industrial organization, regulation, labor economy, and development economics.
She relies both on theory and empirical studies to derive policy recommendations on industrial organization
issues such as privatization, regulation or markets design. Since in practice policy implementation matters as
much as policy design, she also studies incentive in public organizations and government structure.
Throughout the years she received several grants and awards for her research, which has been published in
top international peer‐reviewed journals, including the American Economic Review, Economic Journal, Journal
of Development Economics, Rand Journal of Economics, Journal of Labor Economics, Journal of Public
Economics, International Journal of Industrial Organization. She has been the recipient of the bronze medal of
the CNRS, she is a member of the Institut Universitaire de France (junior and senior). She is a fellow of the
European Economics Association, of the Center for Economic Policy Research, of the European Development
Network, and CESifo. She has also been the chair of Women in Economics (WinE) of the EEA and is the editor of
several scientific journals.
Finally, her research has been featured in stories in the Press (Le Monde, Expansion, The Financial Times,
Die Welt…), on television and radio. She received two prizes for her book "Pour en finir avec les mafias".
