Pro et Contra, Institute
for culture of Dialogue, Slovenia and the World Debate Institute, Vermont, USA
are organizing the International Debate Academy from 11/19/2004 until 11/27/2004

The International Debate Academy is designed for all university students who
want to develop their rhetorical skills and deepen their knowledge about actual
sociopolitical issues. In interactive workshops with internationally recognized
debate professors you will have the opportunity to learn the art of convincing
public speaking and different styles of debating. Debate is going to be the
main tool used in the workshops. This academy is for university students with
considerable debate experience as well as those with not so much debate experience.
Topic of the workshops on International Academy will be relations between USA
and Europe in various areas (economy, security, politics, culture and others)
in structured, investigative, and educating formats. Depending on the participation
of university students from different countries of Europe and USA we expect
colorful views on transatlantic relations that will be exchanged in a cultural
Participation fee will be 90 Euros for participants from Western Europe (all
old members of the EU) and USA and 60 Euros for participants from Eastern and
South-Eastern Europe (including new members of the EU).
