A presentation of the BSU-Open 2017 British Parliamentary Debate was held at the Theology Institute of the Belarusian State University

Published: 13 June 2017

May 12, 2017 students of the Theology Institute of the Belarusian State University met with a well-known worldwide format of the debate.

The format was coined in the UK about a hundred years ago. Nowadays hundreds of thousands of people are learning how to argue arguments. They unite in debate clubs and participate in tournaments and other meetings.

The debate is held according to certain rules by 8 players. They are drawn by lot into 4 teams. Each team, entering the Government or the Opposition, offers arguments and counter-arguments in defense of or refutation of any "bill".

Participants in the tournament at the institute were able to test their strength by debating the theme "Persecution of Christians in Ancient Rome in the 1st century AD".

To deepen knowledge on the topic of the game, Andrei Anatolievich Torcanevsky, assistant professor at the historical faculty of the Belarusian State University, helped.

Participants of the event took part in the tournament on the debates, which took place in BSU on May 13, 2017.

The meeting and the Tournament was organized by the Debate Club of the Student Council for the Quality of Education of the History Faculty of the Belarusian State University. More about the Club - in the group "Vkontakte"  (https://vk.com/debate_bsu).
