The Williamson Lecture This annual lecture was established in memory of Andrew John Williamson, a Politics student who was tragically killed in a road accident in 1981.  The memorial lecture was created and funded by his parents with the aim of bringing a high profile political speaker to the University each year to speak on a theme of contemporary political interest.  Previous eminent speakers have included Alex Salmond, Alistair Darling, Michael Portillo and James Naughtie.
