ODID Holds Workshop in Honour of Valpy FitzGerald
ODID held a workshop in honour of Professor Valpy FitzGerald on 24-25 November 2014, on the theme of Economic Management under Stress. Valpy, who joined the department in October 1993 and was Head of Department between 2007 and 2012, retired in October 2014
The workshop encompassed the broad range of issues to which Valpy has contributed, including the causes and consequences of financial shocks, trends in income distribution in Latin America, and the consequences of conflict, with special attention to Nicaragua, where Valpy was an adviser from 1979 to 1986. The participants included Valpy's colleagues and former colleagues, as well as former students.
