Policy Network will be holding a discussion and Q&A session with David Marquand on 1 June to mark the launch of his new book, The End of the West: the Once and Future Europe.

Taking a searching look at the continent’s governing institutions, history and current financial and social challenges, Marquand offers a disturbing diagnosis of Europe’s ills to point the way towards a better future. Has Europe’s extraordinary postwar recovery limped to an end? Marquand argues that its crises stem from outdated perceptions of global power, and calls for a drastic change in European governance to halt the continent’s slide into irrelevance.
