BBC Global Questions - Politics and the People: A Divided Europe

23/01/2019, Rome

Global Questions is your chance to put questions to a high-level panel of politicians and decision makers. Moderated by Zeinab Badawi, one of the BBC’s most respected journalists, the discussion is shaped by a lively and energetic audience.

Or are there insurmountable fault lines that will continue to divide Europe?
