Debating Nucleus in the UNL Schools of Economics and Law
The “Debating Nucleus” Project began with the proposal made by the Lisbon Debating Society (LDS) suggesting the creation and development of a debating group in the UNL Schools of Economics and Law Its main purpose is to stimulate the creation and application of argumentative texts, aiming at confronting of ideas and opinions.
The aim of this group is to prove that debating is different from arguing, that debating is neither unpleasant nor useless, but rather an attempt to sustain certain opinions that will lead to a conclusion. Within a framework of team spirit, in an organized manner with set standards and rules, current issues of general interest will be debated, in order to ascertain which are the best points of view, and the best argumentative text.
This activity is already carried out in universities abroad (e.g. Great Britain, EUA), where competitions between universities are held. The Core intends to organize internal debates (among students), to participate in inter-school competitions, organized by LDS – the competent body at national level, and to represent Portugal, or the Schools of Economics and Law in international competitions.
