Frederick Ian Nixson – 1943 to 2020
Emeritus Professor of Development Economics, Department of Economics, University of Manchester
It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Fred Nixson on 15th July 2020, following an illness which first developed about five years ago.
Fred had a long and varied career in the academic ‘development community’ with a very considerable publications record. Although primarily a development economist, his perceptions extended into the wider concerns of the development studies circle, as his publications amply testify. Friends are planning a significant tribute to his memory, details of which will emerge in the coming months.
