ANN ARBOR, Mich. Professor Jan Svejnar was recently elected a Fellow of the European Economic Association (EEA). The award is given to economists who have made a significant contribution to the EEA and to economics research in Europe. The lifetime fellowship aims to foster a close relationship between the generations of economic researchers in Europe and to promote the development of economics research there.
Svejnar is the Everett E. Berg Professor of Business Administration at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and an expert on the economies of central and eastern European nations including Russia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Slovakia and Poland.
Svejnar is widely published with research focused on the determinants and effects of government policies on firms and labor and capital markets, corporate and national governance and performance, and entrepreneurship. He studies the interplay of politics and economics, the treatment of workers, the performance of recently privatized firms, the role of entrepreneurship and the shifting balance of power between the United States and the European Union.
