British Academy

This chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to examine the basic questions that confront twenty-first century policy-making: finding a way forward for the British economy; the dilemma of coping with rising demand in the context of limited resources; how to respond to climate change; managing ethnic diversity as multiculturalism appears to have lost its way; whether demographic change equates with a growing burden of dependency; under what circumstances localism helps resolve concentrated neighbourhood problems; and how to overcome public disaffection with politics. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   British economy, policy-making, climate change, multiculturalism, demographic change, localism
