Dr Owen Gower joined Cumberland Lodge in 2007 and is now our Programme Director, responsible for initiating fresh debate on the causes and effects of social divisions by directing our independent research and educational programmes, including our Fellowships, scholarships and our work with schools and international students, as well as our conferences, lectures and seminars.

Owen also has a PhD in Philosophy from King’s College London. He teaches philosophy at Royal Holloway University of London and is a Fellow of Goodenough College and the Royal Society of Arts, and a member of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain.

Owen is married with two children. When work and family permit, he participates in charity walks, volunteers at youth debating competitions, and is an avid and undiscriminating reader.
