Sir Tony Atkinson, 1944-2017

04 January, 2017

It is with great sadness we note the death of Professor Sir Tony Atkinson, one of the world’s leading scholars on the economics of poverty and inequality, and a close friend of the Department.

Sir Tony was a long-time and greatly valued advisor to the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) and we recently had the honour of co-hosting the launch of the 2016 report of the World Bank Commission on Global Poverty, of which he was the lead author.

A tribute to Sir Tony can be found here.
