Roland Hodler

Welcome! I am currently a Professor of Economics at the University of St.Gallen and a Research Fellow at CEPR, CESifo and OxCarre

My research interests are in development economics, political economics, public economics, and resource economics. Among others, I study policies and institutional reforms that could make natural resources and ethnic diversity sources of prosperity rather than causes of conflict, corruption, and favoritism. 

My work has been published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, the Economic Journal, the Journal of Development Economics, the Journal of Public Economics, and the PNAS, and discussed by the BBC, the Economist, the Guardian, Le Monde, NZZ, and the Washington Post.
