Recognising the need to develop a culture that encourages and empowers the youth to think critically and debate social and political norms, TI-M launched the annual Youth Integrity Debate last year. The one day event will involve two teams of experienced university student debaters, debating on pertinent corruption issues in the Malaysian context. The debate will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience, to engage both sides on further issues or queries raised on the matters discussed. This year’s showcase debate will be focusing on the issue of freedom of speech and defamation suits.
DETAILS OF THE DEBATE:
The motion to be discussed will be as follows: "This house would ban private settlements in defamation suits".
The Debate will be held in 3vs3 Asian Parliamentary format.
