Dutch Face Increased Political Challenges Following Brexit

Following the results of the EU referendum and the subsequent decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, Dr. Joris Larik spoke to Xinha and provided some insights into the consequences for The Netherlands and the possibility of a ‘Nexit’.

“Voices are already being raised in the Netherlands for a ‘Nexit’ referendum by far-right wing politicians.
