Join us for this free public debate on how the UK government should respond if and when Catalonia declares its independence from Spain.
Debating London, our signature event, returns to its usual format of a 3 v 3 debate for this debate on a political crisis that is dividing opinion across Europe. Six trainee debaters will be selected from the membership of the Great Debaters Club to make the case for and against the motion. Each speaker will have 5 minutes to address the room with the audience given plenty of opportunities to grill the panel and have their own say.
They won't know what side they are on until after they volunteer and they may well be asked to speak against their own position. That's because they are not there to give their own personal opinion, but to act as advocates for an audience that needs to hear both sides of the argument presented accurately and analysed robustly before deciding where they stand.
