Professor Sir Tony Atkinson
It is with great sadness that we
announce Professor Sir Tony Atkinson,
Centennial Professor at LSE, died on Sunday 1 January 2017.
Atkinson joined STICERD in 1980 where he was chairman between 1981 and 1987 and
an active affiliate for the following thirty years. Throughout these years, many
CASE researchers and associates had the privilege to learn from his sharp mind,
dedication to policy and great kindness. Tony influenced our thinking on
poverty, inequality, social mobility and public policy. By establishing the
Welfare State programme in 1985 Tony played an important role in the foundation
of CASE as an independent research centre in 1997. He also appointed Professor
John Hills who would later go on to become CASEís Director.
contributed 31 valuable papers to our publications over the years, as part of the Welfare
State Programme and later as CASEpapers,
these are available here.
