 The Campbell Public Affairs Institute at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University announces The Campbell Debates, a debate series on timely issues of public importance with a fresh, provocative format.
Employing a style adapted from the Oxford Union debates, each Campbell Debate will allow a gathered audience to consider a question of national, regional or local significance. Two panels comprised of thought leaders will argue for each side, followed by counterpoints and audience questions and comments. At the conclusion of the debate, the audience will vote on the proposition by walking out one of two doors. The format aims to showcase a lively, informative exchange of ideas on controversial issues and to stimulate thinking in a way that is not common to contemporary American political debates.

WHAT: The Inaugural Campbell Debate
Proposition: This assembly would increase taxes on the wealthy.
WHEN: February 1st, 2012, 7 p.m., reception following
