Daring Debates is a one-of-a-kind debate series which aims to bring students from varied backgrounds and regions in the discourse of critical issues that concern South Asia in general and India in particular. It is an initiative to promote students’ participation in the overall process of policy ideation and formation and to ensure that their opinions reach various stakeholders in the gamut.
In 2018, Daring Debates will attempt to invoke a discussion on Gender Equality. The topic: “Is Empowering Women a Dilemma For Men ” will be contested between various teams, each consisting of two members – one speaking for, and the other against the motion. Students from various colleges of Delhi, Goa, Jharkhand, Manipur, and Pune will compete.
The winning team/duo from each city will travel to Goa for the face-off at the finale at Difficult Dialogues to be held at Goa University on February 10, 2018. Senior administrators, experts, and scholars will be the judges.
