6 January 2020

We are saddened to announce the passing of our colleague, Honorary Professor Andrew (Andy) Hughes-Hallett. Andy was Professor of Economics in the School of Economics and Finance, for nine years (2007 to 2016). During this time, as well as teaching, and continuing with top-rank academic publishing, Andy was a major policy figure on the Scottish scene (for example, as Member of the Council of Economic Advisors to the Scottish Government, 2007 to 2015), and provided an exemplar of outreach and impact.
