In this episode, Prof. Graham Wilson talks to Olya Yordanyan about the resilience of the European Union in the face of Brexit and other challenges, given the wave of antipathy towards EU institutions, not only in countries where it might be expected such as Greece, but also in northern Europe. He describes how attitudes toward Europe have changed over the years, the locus of European identity, and the impact of Brexit, among other things.
