Max Watson, Director of PEFM

It is with great sorrow that I learned today that Max Watson, Director of the Political Economy and Financial Markets Programme at St. Antony’s College Oxford has passed away.

Max had a brilliant mind, an amazing sense of humour and was a very nice person. A very rare combination of characteristics.

My condolences and thoughts go to his family.

Max will be greatly missed.
