The University of Liverpool is saddened to learn of the death of former SDLP Leader, Nobel Laureate and Honorary Graduate John Hume KCSG (Hon LLD 2005).
One of the architects of the Northern Ireland peace process, Dr Hume was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1998 for his work alongside David Trimble in helping to secure the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement..
A civil rights campaigner and founding member of the Social Democratic Labour Party, Dr Hume represented Foyle in the Northern Ireland Assembly and was a member of both the UK and European Parliaments.
Among his other numerous awards he received the Gandhi Peace Prize and the Martin Luther King Award, the only person to receive three major awards for peace.
Mr Hume retired from active politics in 2005. In the same year he received an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from the University of Liverpool in a ceremony at the Philharmonic Hall.
