The EU Referendum results reveal a sharp generational divide in British politics. According to YouGov, under-25s were more than twice as likely to vote Remain (71%) than Leave (29%), while among over-65s the picture is almost the exact opposite. 

This panel discussion by Jennifer Jackson-Preece, Manmit Bhambra, Michael Cottakis, Roch Dunin-Wąsowicz, Claire Gordon, and Darren Moon considered how Brexit is shaping the politics of young voters, and the potential implications for the future of UK / Europe relations.
