Debating Matters/University of East London: EU Referendum Debate
In partnership with the University of East London and Nottingham Trent University, Debating Matters will stage a special debate on the UK’s forthcoming European Union Referendum.
As part of The UK in a Changing Europe initiative, funded by the Economic & Social Research Council, Debating Matters will work with the University of East London (UEL) and Nottingham Trent University (NTU) to produce this timely one-off event.
A Debating Matters school will argue against a school team coordinated by UEL, on whether the UK should withdraw from the European Union. Using a specially updated Topic Guide on the issue the sixth formers will be asked to consider some of the key issues being put forward by both the Brexit and Remain camps in the current debate, and of course make a convincing case for their side of the argument!
