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.
