Brexit Watch: Europe's Hopes in a Post-Brexit EU

Jean Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has been outlining his ambitious vision for the EU's future but is his plan possible? Dr. Ben Margulies, an American Political Scientist teaching at Warwick University in the UK gives analysis on Mr Juncker's plans. We also return to the border issues between the UK and Republic of Ireland because of Brexit. If Brexit negotiations go badly, the currently invisible border might have to be re-erected, with all of the dangers that poses for the peace deal that brought IRA and Ulster loyalist paramilitary violence to an end in 1998. The British government says it will find a way to keep the border invisible while still imposing customs and migration regulations. How they will do that has not been fully explained. Dan Damon speaks with Irish Times writer Fintan O'Toole.

Brexit Watch: The Four Freedoms

One of the big talking points over the past few days has been on freedom of movement - the four freedoms of goods, services, capital and labour that come with European Union membership. Prime Minister Theresa May has insisted that free movement will cease at the end of March 2019 when Britain leaves the EU. And one of the places seriously affected by that change will be Ireland, where the border between the North and the Irish Republic will become the only land border between a non-EU UK and the other 27 member.
