Cardiff University experts have paid tribute to Wales’s former First Minister, Rhodri Morgan, who has died.
Rhodri Morgan was a regular visitor to the University. In 2010 he was awarded the University’s first Honorary Degree and appointed an Honorary Distinguished Professor to help enhance the University’s growing reputation for leading research in Welsh governance and politics.
The University’s Morgan Botti Lightening laboratory is named after the former Cardiff MP and AM in tribute to his leading role in securing the facility for Wales.
It remains Europe’s only university-based lightning laboratory and one of only a handful worldwide.
“Rhodri will be missed by all, his intellect and ability to ask the right question are unmatched.”
Professor Karen Holford, Deputy Vice-Chancellor
“It was through Rhodri Morgan’s leadership that the Welsh embraced devolution as the natural order of things. A giant in every sense. Diolch.”
Professor Richard Wyn Jones, Wales Governance Centre
“Clear red water, one-legged ducks, reciting Welsh Commonwealth Games records from the 1950s, and understanding the role of coalitions and political conciliation to stabilise our young democracy. These are the things I remember most about Rhodri Morgan.”
Professor Laura McAlister, Wales Governance Centre
We excel in education, research and innovation and are building strong international relationships whilst demonstrating our commitment to Wales.
