The “International Macroeconomics” Chair, Banque de France - PSE chair was created in September 2009 and is based at the Paris School of Economics. It is the result of a partnership between the French central bank, member of the Eurosystem, and an international research center in Economics. Sharing the same vision about scientific needs on international issues, these two organisations joint their efforts to build a Chair with the objective of fostering the development of research on the financial & monetary international system, and in international Macroeconomics.
This Chair is co-directed by Tobias Broer (PSE/IIES) and Olivier de Bandt (Banque de France).

“The strong partnership developed between the Banque de France and the Paris School of Economics has shown how academic research and the economic policy making can feed off one another.” François Villeroy de Galhau, Banque de France’s governor
