Tsinghua Debate Society (former Tsinghua Debating Society) was established in December 2011 with the objective to provide a platform for the discussion of the world’s most pressing current issues. For this purpose, the Debate Society carries out two kinds of events, roundtables and formal debates. At the roundtables, scholars or practitioners briefly present their views on a topic of their expertise, followed by an extensive open discussion session. The roundtables serve as preludes to formal debates, in which two teams either defend or oppose a motion in a structured format.
