Debate club – Turkey vs EU

As the first official debate club of this semester was organized, we had the chance to talk about the ascension of Turkey to the EU. The reason why ‘talking’ is more appropriate here than ‘arguing’, is because we did not stick to the classical structure of debates during the whole session: after all the pro and con arguments, we had a break after each block to take our time to discuss it in a way that lead to an agreement, or even more, a solution, instead of just trying to convince each other. This way we had the chance to form an objective point of view and to express our honest thoughts, due to the small size of the group and the friendly atmosphere. The feedback of our members was so positive that it is highly possible we will stick to this structure in the future as well, further more, we will even agree on a common statement as well.
