International Week Debate
Tue, 24 Sep 2013 7:00 PM
The James Madison University Debate Society and Office of International Programs are excited to announce the third annual International Week Public Debate. The resolution for this year's debate is “U.S. warrantless wiretapping does more harm than good for society.” JMU is honored to have St. Johns University, University of Pittsburgh, Emory University and George Washington University as part of this year's debate. The public debate follows the long-table format used in the JMU Madison Cup public debate tournament held every spring in Harrisonburg. The debate will feature three two-person teams affirming and three two-person teams negating the resolution. Following the debate, a discussion will take place and audience participation is encouraged. A prize will be awarded to the audience member with the best question or speech from the floor.
