Professor Marc Fleurbaey joins UCHV’s joint faculty  in July 2011 as the Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Public Affairs and the University Center for Human Values. He will also serve as a member of the UCHV executive committee. Prior to coming to Princeton, he was an economist at INSEE (Paris), a professor of economics at the Universities of Cergy-Pontoise and Pau (France), and a research director at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Paris. He has also been a Lachmann Fellow and a visiting professor at the London School of Economics, a research associate at the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE, Louvain-la-Neuve) and the Institute for Public Economics (IDEP, Marseilles), and a visiting researcher at Oxford. A former editor of the journal Economics and Philosophy, Professor Fleurbaey will serve as coordinating editor of Social Choice and Welfare beginning in 2012. He is the author of Fairness, Responsibility, and Welfare (2008), a co-author of A Theory of Fairness and Social Welfare (with François Maniquet, 2011), and the coeditor of several books, including Justice, Political Liberalism, and Utilitarianism: Themes from Harsanyi and Rawls (with Maurice Salles and John Weymark, 2008). His research on normative and public economics and theories of distributive justice has focused in particular on the analysis of equality of opportunity and responsibility-sensitive egalitarianism and on seeking solutions to famous impossibilities of social choice theory.
