Ron Hira teaches in the Department of Political Science at Howard University. He is also a research associate with the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, DC. He specializes in policy issues on offshoring businesses, high-skill immigration, and the American engineering workforce.

Hira has written widely on offshoring, high-skilled immigration, innovation, and the decline of the middle class. He is co-author of the book, Outsourcing America, which was a finalist for best business book in the PMA’s Benjamin Franklin Awards. The Boston Globe called Outsourcing America an “honest, disturbing look at outsourcing.” The Washington Postdescribed the book as a “thorough and easy to grasp primer on the wrenching outsourcing debate.” In addition, he has testified seven times before Congress on high-skilled immigration and outsourcing.
