David Robertson, Emeritus Professor of Politics and Fellow of St Hugh’s College, passed away in the early hours of Thursday 10th August 2017. He was much loved and will be greatly missed.

David had been working at the University of Oxford since 1979, after 10 years at the University of Essex where he was involved with the renowned British Election Study.

Since coming to Oxford his interests shifted considerably: although he always saw himself as a political sociologist at heart, his main teaching was in Comparative Government, and his research was in politics and law. He continued writing well into his retirement.

His funeral will be held on 4 September at 1pm at Blackfriars, Oxford, with a reception to follow at St Hugh's.
