Snap elections, coalition collapses, prisoner swaps, a country changing its name and a twice-extended Brexit process... As 2019 wraps up, FRANCE 24's Europe team looks back on some of the major news events, top guests and some of our best field reporting over the past twelve months. Part 1.


Part 1 includes: Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on why Brexit has made a new bid for Scottish independence inevitable; Romania's former anti-corruption chief Laura Codruta Kövesi on her quest to clean up Romanian politics and public finances, and a behind-the-scenes look at the European Union's fledgling efforts to combat wildfires and other natural disasters.
