David Cameron served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2010 to 2016, leading Britain's first Coalition Government in nearly 70 years and, at the 2015 General Election, forming the first majority Conservative Government in the UK for over two decades. 

Taking office during the fallout from the 2009 financial crisis, the Coalition Government reduced the deficit and revitalised the British economy through a wide-ranging and sometimes controversial programme of economic measures.  His brand of socially and economically liberal conservatism is credited with modernising his party;  under his leadership, same-sex marriage was legalised in England and Wales in 2013.  His premiership is remembered for two historic referendums:  on Scottish independence in 2014, and on EU membership in 2016.  He resigned as Prime Minister in June 2016, following the nation's vote to Leave.

Among his current roles, David Cameron serves as President of Alzheimer's Research UK;  Chair of Patrons at National Citizen Service and having chaired the LSE-Oxford Commission on State Fragility, Growth and Development, he continues to promote international development by co-chairing the Council on State Fragility and serving on the Board of the ONE Campaign.

The annual Benazir Bhutto Memorial Lecture was established to honour the life and legacy of Benazir Bhutto, the first female leader of a majority-Muslim country, and a former President of the Oxford Union
