A new Oxford-Union style debate format will bring together two contestants from academia to debate a specific motion. After the opening statements, the event will see the direct participation of the public who will have the chance to pose their questions and vote for their favourite opinion.
The first event of this series will develop around the motion “This house believes that the ECB should include climate change mitigation within its mandate” on Wednesday 12 May from 1:00pm to 2:00 pm CEST. The proponent will be Dirk Schoenmaker, Professor of Banking and Finance at the Rotterdam School of Management and the opponent Hans-Peter Gruener, Professor of Economic Policy at the University of Mannheim.
