Public Lecture Series 2018

Migration and population logo

We are delighted to announce our latest Public Lecture Series, which will explore the theme of population and migration.

Each event will bring together academics, partners, funding providers and key influencers to showcase the impact of our research on local, national and global issues.

Following on from the success of our previous events, the 2018 Public Lecture Series will provide an opportunity for the wider community to engage with our world-class researchers and other leading experts on the key global challenges we’re tackling at the University of Southampton.

Each event will be live-streamed, so if you can't attend in person you can still watch it as it happens. Watch the live stream from the dedicated lecture page.

Population and migration

This year our events will cover a range of topics related to population and migration. Watch our video, featuring three of our expert speakers, for a taste of the lecture series.

Thought-provoking sessions

For developed countries such as the UK, the mapping of population and migration is important in preventing population decline and assessing the wider benefit of international students.

Meanwhile, lower-middle income countries struggle to tackle the complexities of measuring population and migration, which impacts on their policymaking, freedom to vote, and the efficiency of aid and vaccination delivery.

Representatives from organisations such as the UK government’s Home Office, the Migration Advisory Committee and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development will come together to deliver each thought-provoking session. Each speaker will offer insights into the real-world impact of our research, which is driven by a collegial ambition of changing the world for the better.
