The Clare Distinguished Lecture in Economics and Public Policy first took place in 2006. Each year, the College asks a distinguished visitor to deliver a lecture on a topic of their choice. The aim of the lecture is to encourage the interface between academia and business/public life. The lecture is open to the Collegiate Cambridge community.
The Clare Distinguished Lecture in Economics and Public Policy is made possible by The Smithers & Co. Charity and Andrew Smithers (Clare, 1959).
