Christopher Colclough

It is with great sadness that UKFIET has learnt that Chris Colclough passed on after a short illness.

Chris contributed seminally to the field of education and development since joining the Institute of Development Studies in the 1970s. He has been a stalwart of UKFIET and the Oxford Conference since their inception and most recently as Chair of the Trustees. UKFIET will miss his wit, good humour, administrative skill, and intellectual edge.

There will be an opportunity to reflect on Chris’s work and celebrate his many outstanding contributions at the UKFIET Conference in New College in September. Michele and I welcome thoughts on the most appropriate form for a tribute.

Chris’s contributions will be valued long into the future by his many colleagues and friends. For the moment our thoughts are with his family.

Keith Lewin (UKFIET Trustee and Treasurer)

Chris was the Founding Director of the EFA Global Monitoring Report in 2002,  further tributes to his work have been made by the successive Directors.

Friends and Colleagues were asked to write to Chris those from Cambridge and University of Sussex / IDS were collated.
