Professor Sir Roger Jowell Memorial Lecture



This fractured isle? This disputed realm? The shape of British politics today

with Professor John Curtice, University of Strathclyde

nullThis talk by Professor John Curtice (pictured on the left) will focus on political attitudes in Britain in general - including the future of the UK. The 'fractured isle' refers to the fracturing of English politics as much as it does the debate about the future of the UK.

Chair: Professor Jane Elliott, Chief Executive ESRC

Sir Roger Jowell, CBE (26 March 1942 - 25 December 2011), was an outstanding British social statistician and academic. He founded Social and Community Planning Research (SCPR) - now NatCen Social Research - and the Centre for Comparative Surveys at City University London. He played a leading role in the establishment of several of the UK's leading social surveys, most famously the British Social Attitudes and the British Elections Study. He also made a major contribution to the development of robust comparative research through the International Social Survey Programme and the European Social Survey.

The Social Research Association, NatCen Social Research, The British Library and City University London are organising this second memorial lecture in recognition of the outstanding contribution that Roger Jowell made to the social sciences

Please arrive for registration from 5.30pm. The event will begin at 6pm and takes place in the Terrace Restaurant.

Conact: Rory Fitzgerald, Acting Director, Centre for Comparative Surveys
