Professor Sascha Becker receives IEA Fellow Award 2023

We are pleased to announce that Sascha O. Becker, Professor of Economics at Warwick and Xiaokai Yang Chair of Business and Economics at Monash University, is one of twelve recipients of the 2023 International Economic Association (IEA) Fellow Award.

This annual award is conferred to economists worldwide who have made an important contribution through the creation or dissemination of new ideas and high-quality policy work. The IEA Fellow is one of the two honorific IEA fellowship awards with a nominating committee formed to create a list of nominees who are later put up for vote among existing IEA fellows.

This prestigious award recognises Professor Sascha Becker's excellence in research covering economic history, political economy and labour economics. Sascha has also done policy work with various organisations, most recently with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the World Bank, building on his joint work on forced migration published in the American Economic Review.

In addition to his current role of Professor of Economics at the University of Monash, Sascha is also a part-time Professor of Economics and a CAGE Research Centre associate at Warwick. Previously, he held positions at Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) in Munich and at the University of Stirling, Scotland.

Commenting on his achievement, Sascha said:

“I was delighted to receive the 2023 IEA Fellow Award in the company of such esteemed fellow academics."

Head of Department, Professor Ben Lockwood, said:

“I’m delighted to see Sascha’s excellent research being recognised by the IEA fellowship. On behalf of the whole Department, I congratulate Sascha on this prestigious award and wish him further successes in the future.”
