What? The debate will be in Harvard style, in the tradition of “Veritas” or truth (the motto of Harvard). Each panel member will speak for five to ten minutes followed by question time, encouraging a lively dialogue with the audience in the remainder of the sessions. Both sessions will be moderated. Simultaneous translation will be provided.

This event is free of charge. In order to participate please register at www.debate.harvard-serbia.org. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Why?
Because we want to promote dialogue and to create opportunities for young people in Serbia to debate important issues. We will also host an exhibition at the National Library running through June 2007 that will explore Serbian-US relationships. This event comes at the end of the third year of the Harvard Club of Serbia www.harvard-serbia.org; we are noted as one of Europe’s most active, creative and rapidly growing Harvard alumni associations.
