Trade, Development & Political Economy Workshop





Welcome to Devashish Mitra's homepage!


I am Professor of Economics and Gerald B. and Daphna Cramer Professor of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University. I was the Chair of the Economics Department at Syracuse University from July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2010.

I am Coeditor of Economics and Politics  (2006-present) and Indian Growth and Development Review (2014-present).  In addition, I am/have been Associate Editor of the European Economic Review  (2012-15), Journal of Development Economics (2010-present), Journal of International Economics (2006-15),  International Journal of Business and Economics (2004-present) and International Review of Economics and Finance (2004-present) and Member of the Editorial Board of the Review of International Economics (2009-present), ISRN Economics (2012-present) and Economies (2012-present). I am also a member of the trade program of the International Growth Centre, UK based at the LSE and Oxford, a fellow of the CESifo network, a research professor at the Ifo Institute, Munich and a research fellow at the IZA, Bonn.

My research and teaching interests are in International Trade, Political Economy and Development Economics. More specifically, I have worked on the role of politics in general and of interest groups in particular in the determination of trade policy; and on the impact of trade on productivity growth and labor market outcomes. I am currently working on the impact of  trade on employment, labor shares and unionization. My work has been published in well-known journals like the American Economic Review, the Review of Economics & Statistics, the Economic Journal, the Journal of International Economics and the Journal of Development Economics.
