Farewell to Francesco Pastore. A leading GLO activist passed away too early.

It is with great sadness that we have to accept the much too early death of Professor Francesco Pastore (*June 6, 1966; +July 13, 2022) of Università della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli.

He has been an excellent economist, a great servant of the scientific community, an ambitious and supportive researcher, a wonderful human being, and a real friend .

Francesco, you will be badly missed!

Among his many activities, Francesco Pastore has been

  • GLO Country Lead Italy
  • GLO Cluster Lead School-to-Work Transitions
  • Associate Editor of the Journal of Population Economics
  • Associate Editor of the International Journal of Manpower
  • Co-Editor of two special issues of the International Journal of Manpower on School-to-Work Transitions with the GLO President
  • Very supportive to young scholars also through GLO VirtYS.

His work has been well published and is broadly cited. We have admired his endless engagement and his committed professional activities. He has made a long-lasting impact on our profession.
