Catalonia declares independence from Spain.  Northern Italian regions vote on increasing autonomy from Rome. And these are just the latest secessionist and independence movements making news in Europe.  We’ve invited a panel of experts to learn more about nationalism and secessionism and potential implications for the European Union.
