Annual Debate: This House Believes That the Supreme Court’s Independence Is Crucial To Israel’s Democracy
7.30pm Sunday 8 December
Please note the change of date
Following the success of previous years’ public debates, we are delighted to announce this year’s event which will take place at Netanya AACI.
Debate is an essential tool for maintaining democracy and an open society.
Through debate Netanya AACI aims to promote tolerance for divergent points in a forum where controversial issues will be examined.
Proposing the motion: Raymond Cannon, a retired UK lawyer specializing in EU and international business law.
Opposing the motion: Dr. Norman Bailey, currently a senior researcher at the Centre for National Security Studies at Haifa University.
Both gentlemen are popular Netanya AACI speakers and this promises to be a most interesting and lively evening.
The new streamlined format will have no supporting speakers but will include a coffee break, enabling the audience to formulate their contributions before the final vote.
Dr. Michael Bliss will chair the event.
It is better to debate a question without settling it, than to settle a question without debating it.
