Ethics and Practices

The Ethics Committee, in motion from 2013 – 2017, was established to provide ethical guidance (both usage and collecting of data) for economists' practices.

In 2017, the Committee, composed of Francis Kramarz (Chair), Oriana Bandiera, James Banks, Philipp Kircher and Georg Weizsäcker, drafted its final document Ethical Principles for the European Economist.

These principles act as a guide to researchers and their employers, yet they reflect a general consensus in the profession and actions that violate these principles are likely to require very serious attention including an intensive external validation. This document complements the EEA Code of Professional Conduct, which establishes the core principles the EEA expects its members to adhere in their professional behaviour.
