Résumé

We develop a new robust-to-outliers dummy estimator that we subsequently apply to investigate the impact of various democratic attributes on foreign direct investment in recent years. We find that democracy has generally a positive impact on foreign direct investment, once outliers are controlled for, but that this relationship is very specific to each host country's characteristics.
