Due to unforeseen circumstances the SPERI Book Launch of Europe’s Deadlock by David Marsh has been postponed. The event which was set to take place on Thursday 7 November in Firth Hall will now take place at the same time of 18.00, on Wednesday 20 November in St George’s Church Lecture Theatre at the University of Sheffield.
David Marsh CBE is Chairman of the financial think-tank ‘Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum’ (OMFIF) and a former Financial Times journalist.
In his new book, Europe’s Deadlock, he explains how five years of continuous crisis management have not only failed to resolve the Eurozone’s problems but actually made things worse. While austerity-wracked southern states descend into misery and resentment, creditor countries – led by Germany – fear that they will be forced to subsidise their weaker brethren indefinitely. Constructive dialogue has collapsed as European decision-making descends into terrified paralysis, and the potential paths out of the impasse are blocked by indecision and incompetence at the top.
The paperback edition is being launched on Wednesday 20 November 2013 at Firth Hall, University of Sheffield.
Simon Bulmer (Professor of European Politics, University of Sheffield) and Lucia Quaglia (Professor of Political Science, University of York) will give their reactions to the book and then members of the audience will have their chance to ask David questions.
We hope you can make it!
