Ugo Panizza

Welcome to my web page.


I am Professor of Economics and Pictet Chair in Finance and Development at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. I am also the Director of the Center for Finance and Development.

Prior to joining the Institute, I was the Chief of the Debt and Finance Analysis Unit at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and a Senior Economist in the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank. I also worked at the World Bank and taught at the American University of Beirut and at the University of Torino.

I am a former member of the Executive Committee of the Latin American Economic Association (LACEA) and former editor of the Association's journal Economia. I am the editor in chief of International Development Policy and a member of the editorial board of the IMF Economic Review, the Review of Development Finance, the Review of Economics and Institutions, and the Annals of the Fondazione Einaudi.
