The inaugural lecture was attended by friends, family, colleagues from the Faculty, post-graduate students and fellow economists from UFS, UJ and Rhodes. Prof Blaauw spoke about his research into the informal labour market in South Africa – and the “missing pieces of the puzzle” that make for his future research agenda in this field.

Congratulations Derick!
