This is an excellent site for contributing to online debates:  Previous debates have covered a vast range of interesting and stimulating topics:

˜This House believes that Britain should leave the EU’

˜This House believes that a Woman’s Place is at Work.’

˜This House believes that climate-control policies cannot rely on carbon capture and storage.’

˜This House believes that state capitalism is a viable alternative to liberal capitalism.’

At the moment it is still possible to contribute to the debate: ˜ This House believes that military intervention in Syria would do more harm than good.’

Even if the girls do not wish to contribute to the debates it’s a fantastic way to engage with the views of academic experts. The result of each debate is published and girls can receive email alerts of the latest debate topics.
