Can Responsible Debate Renew Democracy?

By 26th September 2019 No Comments


What principles do you think should govern political debate?

Democracies pride themselves on allowing space for free political discussion as a way of reaching a compromise.

But political conversation in parliaments, on TV and on social media seems to be increasingly polarised.

Join us for a lively discussion of better and worse ways to disagree with one another. The outcomes of this discussion will inform our project to create a Scottish Charter for Responsible Public Debate.


This event is being delivered as part of the Festival of Politics at the Scottish Parliament.
