Hugo Lecture

The Hugo Lecture is an annual public oration delivered by a prominent academic thought-leader on a topic of contemporary global importance. It was established in 2015 in memory of the late Professor Graeme Hugo, an internationally renowned demographer based at the University of Adelaide for several decades.

The Lecture is hosted, in partnership with the Don Dunstan Foundation, by the Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research, a global hub for innovative, interdisciplinary research on migration and population issues also established in Graeme’s honour.
