Hâle Utar is the Sidney Meyer Professor of International Economics at Grinnell College, USA, a research fellow at IZA, a member of CESifo, and an Associate Editor at the Review of International Economics. Her research explores how international trade reshapes the organization of firms, industries, and labor markets. In a series of recent papers, Utar provides detailed analyses of how globalization in the form of import competition provokes adaptation in advanced country manufacturing firms, oftentimes costly transition for workers to other sectors and occupations, and indeed transformations in society in the form of polarization and changes in family patterns. Currently, her research agenda centers on the adjustment of global value chains in the new era of rising protectionism and automation. Her work has appeared in journals including the Review of Economic Studies, the Review of Economics and Statistics, the International Economic Review, the American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, and the Journal of Development Economics.
