The International Debate Education Association (IDEA) has launched the Second Annual Global Debate & Public Policy Challenge. This year’s theme, “Digital Freedom and Its Limits“, explores what policies governments or other groups should adopt to enhance the potential of digital technology to benefit individuals and societies. It also encourages debates about the limits on internet freedom and covers issues related to social networks, privacy, child safety, freedom, censorship, democracy, transparency, national security and much more.
It is a great opportunity for undergraduate students and recent graduates to win a trip to Budapest, one of many $10,000 scholarships and contribute to public policy debate on important issues.
The Challenge is a joint project of the International Debate Education Association, the European Council on Foreign Relations and Central European University with funding provided by the Open Society Foundations.
