Debating Matters India: A taster

Now in its third year, Debating Matters is jointly organised by the British Council India and the Institute of Ideas.  In this short glimpse of the event in 2010, we see students engaging in debate on contemporary society at the highest level, pushed to think beyond the semantics of the issue and modes of presentation.  As former student and Debating Matters participant, Nitin Jayakrishnan remarks: “It is only through debating and through public speech where experts, the public and other people of the opposite opinion question you and criticise, that you learn, it’s criticism that matters, and I think Debating Matters pulls it off brilliantly.”
