Dr Martin will be an honoured guest at the Oxford Martin School Distinguished Public Lecture to be given by Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Pascal Lamy. The lecture, Global Governance, Local Governments will take place on 8 March. It will be introduced by the Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Lord Patten of Barnes.

Dr Martin’s visit also coincides with the Oxford London Lecture by Professor Sarah Harper on 13 March. Professor Harper directs the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, a member of the Oxford Martin School. She will be speaking on the theme of The 21st Century – the last century of youth.
