The Eric Symes Abbott Memorial Lecture 2022: Securing a Europe of peace, freedom and justice

Date Time Location Price

Lord Adonis gives the 36th annual Eric Symes Abbott Memorial Lecture at Westminster Abbey.

Money has long been associated with moral danger and the deliberate parting with it is generally seen as something to be honoured and encouraged. But globalisation of markets, environmental degradation and the rise of technology have created new geographies of ethical risk which national governments find it hard to tackle. Knowing how money talks and that much change is needed, how do we work out where it is now safe to stand?

The speaker

Lord Adonis, an alumnus of Keble College, served in the governments of both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, and speaks and writes on various aspects of public policy. He is Chair of European Movement UK (founded by Winston Churchill in 1949), and has been a Visiting Professor at King’s College London since 2014.

The Eric Symes Abbott Memorial Lectures

The Eric Symes Abbott Memorial Lectures are given in memory of Dean Eric Symes Abbott (1906-1983), who was at various times Dean of King's College London, Warden of Lincoln Theological College, Warden of Keble College Oxford, and Dean of Westminster. The Eric Symes Abbott Memorial Fund was endowed after his death by his friends to provide for an annual lecture on spirituality and pastoral theology.
