On 9th November 2000 Senator Edward Kennedy delivered the first John Smith Memorial Lecture at an event held jointly by Zurich Financial Services and the Smith Institute at the Banqueting House, Whitehall, London. The lecture took its start from John Smith’s belief that prosperity and social justice must go hand in hand, addressing such varied issues as poverty and global hunger, equal opportunity, the need for international cooperation in an era of globalisation, health care and labour rights in the US and throughout the world, civil rights, the peace process in Northern Ireland and the central role of education in developing human potential.
