Jean Pisani-Ferry

Visiting Fellow

Jean Pisani-Ferry is currently a visiting fellow at the Peterson  Institute for International Economic. He holds the Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa chair  of the European University Institute in Florence and is a senior fellow at  Bruegel, the European think tank.

Pisani-Ferry has had a distinguished career in France  and Europe. He was a major participant in Emmanuel Macron's presidential bid,  serving as director of programme and ideas for his campaign and after the  election as chief designer of the French government's investment plan. From 2013  to 2016 he served as commissioner-general of France Stratégie, the ideas lab of the French government. In the  early 2000s he also served as senior economic adviser to the minister of finance  and executive chairman of the French prime minister's Council of Economic  Analysis.  

From 2005 to 2013 Pisani-Ferry was the founding  director of Bruegel and steered its ascent to the top rank of European economic  think tanks. Under his leadership Bruegel contributed significantly to shaping  the European response to the financial crisis and the euro crisis.

Pisani-Ferry's noted contributions to recent policy  debates include a much-discussed proposal for EU-UK relations after Brexit  (2016), an influential Franco-German report on comprehensive eurozone reforms  (2018), a blueprint for differentiated integration in Europe (2018), and a recently  published outline for enhancing Europe's economic sovereignty in the new global  context (2019).   

Pisani-Ferry, who also teaches at Sciences Po Paris  and the Hertie School in Berlin, has a monthly column in Le Monde, the influential French newspaper, and another one for  Project Syndicate, which is published monthly in a series of European and  international media.
