The aim of Slippery Slope is to set alarm bells ringing across Europe, with its revealing insights into our increasingly troubled future. Giles Merritt sets out to sort fact from fiction in his analysis of Europe’s weaknesses, and the policies needed to address them. Placing the outlook for Europe in its global context, he assesses Europe’s decline in relative as well as absolute terms, and puts forward an ambitious but realistic ‘to do’ list for Europe’s policy-makers, if our comparatively privileged lifestyles are not to be seriously threatened in coming years.
After months of campaigning, on Saturday 25th June when the Felixstowe Book Festival launches, we will have heard the results of the Brexit referendum. It is timely that an author who is expert on Europe is the
Festival’s first speaker and will be able to give his immediate reaction to the referendum results, how and why the UK has voted and what it means for the future.
