Professor Anand Menon will deliver the fourth annual lecture in memory of Professor Sir Roger Jowell.
Anand Menon will speak about what the vote for Brexit means for the UK and its relationship with the countries who remain a part of the union. As Chair of the UK in a Changing Europe initiative - based at King's College London - Menon is in a unique position to offer valuable insight into this critical issue.
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 established the European Social Survey (ESS) at City, University of 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. Sir Roger also made a major contribution to the development of robust comparative research through both the International Social Survey Programme and the ESS.
