Are you tired of people talking about how great the EU is? Do you love talking about how great the EU is? Then we have the event for you!

Europe Outside the Box, the College of Europe debating club, is pleased to present its first event of the year, a student-led debate on the motion "This House Believes that the EU has Failed".

The details

  • Two teams (one in favour of the motion and one against) of 4 or 5 speakers each. Speakers sign up individually; any student or member of staff of the College can be a speaker.
  • No previous debating experience necessary to participate.
  • The debate will follow the British Parliamentary Style format. Don't know what that is? No problem! We'll provide guidelines and coaching to the participants.
  • Audience voting will determine the winning team.
