Speaking against the motion:
Oliver Kamm, leader writer and columnist for The Times,
Prof. Colleen Graffy, former United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy
You are invited to join us!
Time: Monday 17 November 2014, 17:30-19:00, to be followed by a cocktail

This event also kicks off the first ever Geneva Peace Week.
Interpeace is an independent, international peacebuilding organization. Interpeace was initially established by the United Nations to develop innovative solutions to build peace. Today we support locally-led peacebuilding initiatives in over 21 countries across Central America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Intelligence Squared was founded in London in 2002 and now operates in New York, Sydney, Hong Kong and Israel. Its debates – many of which are televised on BBC World News to a global audience of 80 million – have featured a prestigious range of speakers including President Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Patti Smith and Richard Dawkins.
