The Drever Commemoration Lecture

University of Dundee – Saturday Evening Lecture Series 2017 - Dundee to the World

Saturday 25th March 2017

An evening with three graduates who shaped and reported on global events. This is also the Drever Commemoration Lecture.

This event will celebrate three of our prestigious graduates who studied here during James Drever’s time as Principal. James Drever was a massive advocate for political discourse, encouraging students to strike and make stands against funding cuts. Each of these graduates has gone on to make an impact in the field of politics:

Sir William Patey has played a leading personal role in some of the most challenging diplomatic events of our times during his Ambassadorial roles in Sudan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan.
Lord George Robertson is a former politician and was Secretary of State for Defence between 1997 and 1999. 
John Suchet is a former foreign correspondent, presenter and a commentator on major ceremonial occasions.
