Claude Menard is Economist, University of Paris (Pantheon-Sorbonne) and an Adjunct Professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. 

His main field of research has been  the economics of organisations and institutions. Over time, he has been increasingly involved in the economics of infrastructures, with a special emphasis on the water sector; in the analysis of internal properties of organisations; in inter-firm agreements (“hybrid” arrangements, such as joint ventures, strategic alliances etc.); and in the interaction between institutional reforms and organizational change.

He created and directed the Center ATOM (Analytical Theory of Organizations and Markets) from 1991 until 2009, when it merged with the Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne.

He has been a co-founder of the International Society for New Institutional Economics, with Ronald Coase, Douglass North, Oliver Williamson, and a few others, and was president of that association in 2001-2002 (in 2015, the name of ISNIE has been changed in SIOE – Society for Institutional and Organizational Economics). He has been co-editor of the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization from 1998 to 2011 and director of the Advances in New Institutional Analysis series (Edward Elgar Pub.)
