The event speaker for the third memorial lecture is Professor Dame Anne Johnson from University
The talk by Professor Anne Johnson will draw on what we have learnt from the National Surveys of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles, outlining the factors that have influenced marked changes in behaviour over the last 60 years, and how these once politically sensitive surveys have informed policy.
The event will be chaired by Professor Anthony Heath, Nuffield College, University of Oxford
About Roger Jowell
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 third memorial lecture in recognition of the outstanding contribution that Roger Jowell made to the social sciences.
