International Graduate Debate: New Authoritarian Challenges to Liberal Democracy

News vom 26.02.2020

The Institute for Political Studies of the Catholic University of Portugal is hosting its annual major international summer school and conference in Lisbon at the end of June, bringing together policy-makers and academics from the US, UK, Portugal and the rest of Europe.


Key note speakers include Professor José Manuel Barroso, with other speakers to be confirmed.


The motion to be debated will be: Should democracies perceive China as a threat or a partner? This will be in the form of a public Oxford Union-style event led by Europaeum graduate students and will involve four research graduates, each speaking for and against the given proposition, with expert commentators a hand, and a final open vote on the proposition taken. We may also be able accept more participants who do not take part in this debate.


Accommodation, travel and board (including three special conference dinners) for this three-day conference, based on the Lisbon coast, will be covered for the selected graduates. Successful applicants are expected to book their own travel and be reimbursed on the first day of the conference.


More information on how to apply: https://europaeum.org/events/ Students currently enrolled on master’s or PhD courses at a Europaeum member university can apply. A poster can be downloaded here.


DEADLINE 6th April 2020. All enquiries: euroinfo@europaeum.ox.ac.uk
