How to see the world in 3D: Dilemma, debate, democracy, debate education by DIA

In a country where the civic education of young people has been neglected for decades including the last 22 years, debate education is one of the neglected areas of public education.

DIA manages a variety of debate programs in order to develop young people’s democratic and citizenship skills.

The most recent one, funded by the European Commission and the Open Society Foundations is aiming at bringing debating skills to secondary schools all over the country. One-day events are organized whereby our trainers deliver debate workshops to students on topics related to the EU and invite local decision makers and opinion leaders to a round table discussion where the students are in the audience. The programs includes in-service professional development for teachers and a grants program which enables the teachers to initiate local debate projects.
