A Premier Debate Competition

The current state of the world has highlighted the importance of Spreading Awareness and Effective Deliberation while accommodating Multiple Perspectives. We strongly believe that public speaking events like Debate can build the much needed adaptive capacity in young people, and help build a Democratic society which is not only aware but also knows the importance of having an open-mind. With the aim to reinstill faith in democracy, we are delighted to bring to you the Inaugural edition of “The Debate Hour: An International Debate Championship”, hosted by CIRCEI Education Services.

Registrations are now open!
