Weidenfeld Debates

The Weidenfeld Debates have been a key element of the Programme since 2008. Over the years there have been a great many memorable debates focusing on a wide variety of issues from human rights to climate change, the economic crisis to terrorism, the internet to Islam.

Whatever the topic, the aim of the Weidenfeld Debate is to generate a unique, interdisciplinary and policy-orientated discussion of topical issues of international significance, as well as developing the scholars’ skills of collaboration, organisation and initiative.
