Join us at the Sheldonian Theatre for the 2022 Romanes Lecture, where the Taoiseach Micheál Martin T.D., Prime Minister of Ireland, will discuss liberal democracy and the populist threat.

Micheál Martin was appointed Ireland’s Taoiseach in June 2020, leading a three-party coalition government. He has served as leader of the Fianna Fáil party since January 2011.  

The Romanes Lecture is the annual public lecture of the University. A most distinguished public figure from the arts, science or literature is invited by special invitation of the Vice-Chancellor. The lecture was created in 1891, following an offer by George John Romanes of Christ Church to fund an annual lecture, and the first lecture was given in 1892 by William Gladstone.
