An Oxford debate revolves around the thesis that is defended by the Proposition and the goal of this site is to convince the audience that the thesis is valid. On the other side, the task of the Opposition is to disprove and overthrow the Proposition. Interesting fact is, the participants of the debate don’t know which site they will stand for – they will find out just before the beginning of the event. A person who is responsible for conducting the discussion and monitoring the rules is the Marshal. Debate Secretary supports the Marshal and makes sure that timings and order of speeches and appropriate. All of the participants should share values of respect and tolerance. It is unacceptable to offend the Speakers of the opposite party. Culmination point of the debate is the moment of voting. The team which will convince the audience and the Board of Judges and also use better arguments, wins.
We would like to proudly announce that our debate will be led by Mariola Czechowska – Frączak who will hold role of the Marshal.
