Researcher in labour economics made Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts

5 February 2018

Ken Clark, Senior Lecturer in Economics at The University of Manchester, has been appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). The RSA’s mission is to enrich society through ideas and action.

Ken said: “I’m delighted to have been recognised in this way for my research in labour economics. A lot of my work has been around the employment and wages of ethnic minorities and immigrants in the UK, an area which is of major concern for policy makers at the moment. Sometimes pragmatism seems in short supply these days but the RSA is well known for pursuing practical, creative and inclusive solutions to social problems so I’m really looking forward to working with them.”

The RSA believes that all human beings have creative capacities that, when understood and supported, can be mobilised to deliver a 21st century enlightenment.

Supported by its Fellows, it shares powerful ideas, carries out cutting-edge research and builds networks and opportunities for people to collaborate, helping to create fulfilling lives and a flourishing society.
