The West has long been a font of stability and prosperity, but global instability and economic uncertainty has tempted states to close borders, hoard wealth, and solidify power. What changes should the West make, be it reinventing welfare systems or redefining the working age, to revive itself now and thrive in a bright future.

Two leading commentators explore the implcations of Brexit and the withdrawal from globalisation in a fascinating conversation. Bill Emmott is the former editor-in-chief of the Economist, author of The Fate of The West and leading consultant on international affairs. Robert Tombs is Professor of History at Cambridge University. He is author of That Sweet Enemy: The French and the British from the Sun King to the Present, and The English and Their History. He is one of the leading scholars of Anglo-French relations.
