Professor Elisabeth Krecké

Elisabeth Krecké is a professor of economics at Aix Marseille University, France. Currently on long-term academic leave, she joined the Ministry of Finance in her home country, Luxembourg, as policy analyst in 2015-2016, mostly to assist the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Previously, Professor Krecké taught at the University of Science and Technology of Lille.

Her main areas of expertise are the interrelated fields of Economic Analysis of Law and Political Economy of Regulation.

Much of Professor Krecké’s earlier work focuses on the methodology of the Economic Analysis of Law. She has published articles in various collective volumes and international journals specialized in this field. She also coedited a volume on behavioral studies, Cognition and Economics (Elsevier JAI, 2007), which invited specialists in economics, law, cognitive psychology, philosophy of the mind and neuroscience to assess recent trends in modern social sciences, transposing the tools and findings of behavioral research to economic and legal analysis.

Professor Krecké’s recent research is dedicated more specifically to the study of patterns of interaction between ever-more-complex EU regulatory frameworks and markets.

She holds a PhD in economics (Aix Marseille University, 1993).
