Speaker information

George Fergusson, has been Governor of Bermuda since 2012. He was in the Northern Ireland Office from 1978-91 and in the UK talks team for the Good Friday Agreement and subsequent negotiations from 1997-99. During that time, he was also responsible for developing the FCO’s formal relationships with the new devolved administrations. While High Commissioner to New Zealand from 2006-10, he was non-resident Governor of Pitcairn.

At a time when models of devolution within the UK's home countries are being debated, the models already operating in the wider realm of the UK are often overlooked.

The presentation will set out how Bermuda’s devolution works, and how it differs and parallels other models within the broader UK system.
