EU ON THE BRINK OF BREAK-UP? The refugee crisis is overwhelming Europe and threatening the viability of the Schengen or open borders policy, a cornerstone of the European Union. The fear of terrorism is fueling the rise of right-wing political parties. On this edition of Encounter, host Carol Castiel revisits these issues and the prospects of the UK exiting the EU with Alina Polyakova, Associate Director of the Eurasia Center at The Atlantic Council, and Ivan Vejvoda, Senior Vice President of Programs at The German Marshall Fund of the United States.
