Prof Nicholas Crafts Presidential Memorial Lecture

Nick Crafts Lecture-01

The first day of the 2024 Annual Conference in Belfast included a lecture devoted to Prof Nicholas Crafts, who died in 2023. Prof Crafts served as RES President for the year 2022-2023.

The lecture, chaired by RES President Prof Mary S. Morgan, included a series of video and audio recordings of talks Nick gave over the years. In addition, we heard from Nick’s past students, friends and colleagues, including Prof Jane Humphries (University of Oxford), Mr Tom Aldred (Government Economic Service) and Prof Cormac Ó Gráda (University College, Dublin).

Through the lecture, we were able to remember Nick’s passion for economics, his outstanding accomplishments and his wonderful sense of humour.
