Public Debates

Some of the public debates were an integral part of the debate tournaments, while others will be held on separate occasions. The themes are similarly focused on European wide issues, but concentrated on one topic. The goal of the public debate event is to allow students and policy makers to exchange ideas about solutions to European-wide problems. As the dates and topics for the public debates come in, they will be published here. Results and videos from the public debates will also be published on the website.
