2d08 – Should Turkey be part of the EU?


In 1987 Turkey officially applied to become a member of the European Union and has been in the process to join the union ever since. Turkey is already closely affiliated in a number of related agreements and is an important economical partner. Yet, there is still a lot of work to do before Turkey is on the same level of regulation and standard as many European countries. In this debate Sebastian argues for Turkey joining the EU and Dirk takes a stand against that idea.

Inbetweenosode “Should Turkey be part of EU?”


Dirk and Sebastian talk about a range of tools Sebastian used to analyze complexity and tone of our debates and we talk about online debating and some of the feedbacks we've seen. But as usual: the main purpose of our in-between-o-sodes is to open the floor for your initial votes on the motion “Turkey should be part of EU!”.

2d07 – Should homeopathy be considered like any other medicine?


Homeopathy is a method of treatment that is part of the so-called alternative medicine. In this debate Sebastian and Dirk basically agree that homeopathy is not scientifically proven nor a method they personally trust. Yet, Dirk is defending strongly the position that homeopathy still deserves a place in the selection of tools used by medicine. Important: Neither Dirk nor Sebastian are trained medical professionals. Please do not take our debate as advice on the matter...

2d06 – Let’s ban election polls!


BREXIT and the US election are only two examples of many where election polls published earlier seem to have gotten it wrong. Some even argue that election polls may even distort elections at large and deflect from real issues. Today Sebastian and Dirk debate whether we should therefore go ahead and ban election polls all together.

2d05 – Quotas promote diversity


It is a much researched and widely accepted fact that diversity - whether it is gender, ethic or other forms of diversity - is good for business and society. But how do we achieve this in a world that clearly favors men over women or has a hard time balancing numerous conscious and unconscious biases? Sebastian and Dirk debate one of the common tools in that battle - quotas and Dirk argues against their use while Sebastian starts by advocating for it.
