Could Brexit be a turning point for Europe? With the wheels coming off the project of European integration, how will EU leaders react? And what does the future hold for the 28 (soon to be 27) member bloc?
Debating Europe, with our partners at the Kuldiga Centre Secondary School in Latvia, recently hosted a student debate with two Latvian politicians: Latvian MP Lolita Cigane, and a deputy of Kuldiga city council, Ruta Karlovica.
The topic of the event was “Europe, today and in the future”. Students asked questions about the refugees crisis, Brexit, the economy, and education. By all accounts, the speakers appreciated students’ interest in the processes of contemporary European politics.
For our Latvian readers, the video (in Latvian) is posted below:
