UK Votes to Leave EU

As the UK votes to leave the European Union, we ask a panel of experts from across the continent what the split means for the country's economy and the future of the EU itself.

What does the UK's decision to leave the European Union mean for the future of the single market?

Economists talk of sustained market turbulence, devaluations and an imminent recession, but will it be Britain or the EU suffering the worst effects long-term?

And as eurosceptic political parties across the continent are buoyed by the UK's vote and call for their own referendums, what must the EU project itself do to survive?

Ed Butler is joined by three guests from across the EU: Damien Lempereur from Debout La France, a political party which wants a French exit from the EU; Jens Zimmerman, a member of Germany's Social Democratic Party and part of Angela Merkel's coalition government; and Swati Dhingra, from the London School of Economics.
