In memoriam

April 7th, 2023

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Pierre-André Jouvet, professor at the University of Paris Ouest Nanterre. Pierre-André was a colleague, a thesis director, a co-author and a long-time friend for many of us. He was a dynamic and curious researcher, a demanding and always enthusiastic co-author, a constructive and benevolent supervisor. He took an early interest in environmental issues, crossing dynamic macroeconomics and public economics. His work on the interactions between the dynamics of the population and the environment is the precursor of a vast field of literature.

We share the pain of his wife Johanna, his children Clélia and Alexis, his many co-authors, doctoral students and friends.

We wanted Michel Moreaux to be among the first honorary members of FAERE.
He was the professor, the thesis director, the co-author of many of us, members of our association or not. He played an eminent role in research in resource and environmental economics in France, and internationally through his numerous publications.
He was also an endearing and often surprising man. His intellectual curiosity and eclecticism were remarkable. We will remember the conversations with him, on all subjects, from history and demography to engines and energy physics, from the pleasures of the motorcyclist to those of the gourmet, and so many others.

We are very grieved and will miss him bitterly.



July 2021

It is with sadness that we learned of the death of Thierry Bréchet, professor at UC Louvain.
We all appreciated his friendliness, humor and insight.
His disappearance is a great loss for our community.
To use a phrase he loved: Farewell dear colleague, and nevertheless friend!

It is with infinite sadness that we learned of the death of Yolande Hiriart, after a long struggle against the disease.

Yolande was a ray of sunshine, the embodiment of life, joy and good humor. Everyone who knew her today remembers her bright smile, as in this picture taken at the EAERE conference in Gothenburg in 2008. She was our friend above all, and a valued colleague for her remarkable personality and intelligence. Moving from growth analysis to law economics, she had always remained an economist of the environment and natural resources.

She leaves two girls, Louise and Astrid, as bright as she is, to whom we address our thoughts, as well as their father David.



April 10th, 2017

We are immensely sad to have to announce that Pierre Lasserre, our colleague and dear friend, died in a ski accident.

Last year FAERE was proud to elect him as an honorary member. He had just retired and was planning to devote all his time to research, mountaineering, skiing and all his passions. We would have liked to continue to benefit from his attentive benevolence, his experience and his passion for research in economics.

We share the pain of his wife, his children and grandchildren, but also of his co-authors, his former students, his colleagues who are all friends.
