Roland Hodler

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

My main fields of research are development economics and political economics. My interests include how ethnic diversity, natural resources and foreign aid influence economic and human development as well as conflict, corruption and favoritism.

My research has been published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, the Journal of Development Economics, the Journal of Public Economics, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences; and covered by the BBC, the Economist, the Guardian, Le Monde, NZZ, and the Washington Post.
