Visiting Parliamentary Fellowship Seminar Series

Visiting Parliamentary Fellowship Seminar Series

Although St Antony's has always included many Fellows and students with an interest in contemporary politics and world affairs, a notable addition to the College's activities was launched in May 1993 when the Governing Body created a Visiting Parliamentary Fellowship.

The idea was that two Members of Parliament - one from the governing party and the other from one of the main opposition parties - would be elected to the Fellowship each year. The hope, which has been fully realised, was that they would visit the College regularly and in one term help to organise a seminar on important political and other matters.

We are delighted to announce that The Right Honourable Chris Skidmore OBE and Alex Sobel MP will St Antony's Visiting Parliamentary Fellows for the 2023-34 academic year.

Thomas Hale, Professor of Global Public Policy at Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government and Governing Body Fellow of St Antony's College, will be coordinating the seminar series. 

Dates will be announced soon for 2024 seminars on the topic of Climate and Sustainability.
