An international panel weighs in on Britain’s exit from the European Union and what it means on a local and global scale. The Guardian US Data Editor Mona Chalabi, Man Booker Prize-winner Anne Enright and economics editor of The Sydney Morning Herald Ross Gittins talk to Anton Enus about how Brexit will affect employment, the economy, immigration and art. Guests consider the view that Brexit will slow growth, and the ‘Leave’ campaign’s counterarguments that Britain will prosper.

Please note: Ian Rankin and Sebastian Mallaby will no longer be appearing at this event.
