International Economics and Political Economy

Frank Bohn joined the Department of Economics in September 2006 (and has been a research fellow at the ETH Zürich (Switzerland) since 2020). Before that he was a lecturer at Essex University (UK) and University College Dublin (Ireland). His academic background comprises a Licence (BSc) from Toulouse University (France), a Diplom (MSc) from Bonn University (Germany), a Princeton University Fellowship (US), and a PhD from Heidelberg University (Germany). Frank's interest in macroeconomic theory extends into public choice and political economy. He has several papers in public finance, monetary economics and international economics incorporating political instability, corruption, rent-seeking, time-inconsistency, disinformation and/or political budget and forecast cycles. He founded the Radboud University Centre for Analytical Modelling (www.RUCAM.nl; three workshops; two guest editorships) and now also works on democratic backsliding and sanctions. In the last six years, he published thirteen papers in journals such as the Journal of Public Economics, Review of International Organizations, Journal of Risk and Uncertainty, Journal of Theoretical Politics, Public Choice, PlosOne, Economics and Politics and the European Journal of Political Economy. He also has two articles in the forthcoming Elgar Encyclopedia of Public Choice.
