Ferguson Lectures

The Ferguson Lectures, focussing on contemporary issues, have been running since 2007 when our first speaks was the late Tony Benn.  Other, more recent speakers have included Freddy Naftel, Rowan Williams and, most recently, Cambridge academic and faith activist Sughra Ahmed. 

The lectures are open to the public and free of charge.

The first Ferguson Lecture of the academic year, entitled Humanitarian Aid: Principled or Political?, was given on Wednesday 4th October by Cees Wittebrood.  Cees Wittebrood was formerly Head of Unit Asia, Latin America, Pacific and Caribbean at the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid Department (ECHO).  He was formerly Head of Unit for Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.

Ferguson Lectures are free of charge.  Tickets must be collected from Reception at No 10 Maze Green Road please.

The second of this year's Ferguson Lectures will be given by journalist, columnist and critic Jason Cowley.  Date to be confirmed.
