Her writing has ranged across issues such as medical negligence, terrorism and the rights of children. Kennedy’s broadcast work has included the BBC’s Heart of the Matter and After Dark.

Kennedy has been a Labour peer in the House of Lords since 1997 and has held many distinguished positions including Chancellor of Oxford Brookes University, chair of the British Council and chair of the Human Genetics Commission. She is currently chair of JUSTICE, the human rights organisation, and principal of Mansfield College, Oxford.

The Gibraltar Lecture is given at the invitation of HM Government of Gibraltar. Previous speakers were Ben Okri (2014), Professor Frank Close (2015), Boyd Tonkin (2016) and Laurence Rees (2017).
