‘Debating the Future of African Youth in Europe and Africa’   After Summer Schools, 12-14 and 19-21 October 2012, Utrecht   Debate competition and Final Public Debate, 25-26 October, Leiden
The African Studies Centre (ASC) and International Debate Education Association (IDEA) invite young people to train their debate skills, exchange with others and debate about the future of African youth. Instead of talking about African youth, we want to talk with African and Dutch young people in the project: 
 ‘Debating the Future of African Youth in Europe and Africa’ 
 After Summer Schools, 12-14 and 19-21 October 2012, Utrecht 
 Debate competition and Final Public Debate, 25-26 October, Leiden 
African and Dutch students, (voluntary) employees of organizations, migrants and refugees (18-30 years old) can register for one of the two ‘After Summer Schools’ including an expert lecture, intensive debate training, exchange and practice debate (12-14 or 19-21 October, Utrecht). This is followed by an open debate competition and a final public debate (25-26 October, Leiden). 
We take up actual issues, such as the absence of substantive discussion on development cooperation, and the large group of young African migrants who stay temporally or longer in the Netherlands, and have little links with society. With this project we want to foster an open exchange and mutual understanding. 
Participants are Dutch and African young people – students, (voluntary) staff of civil society, migrants and refugees – who debate with each other and with leading policy makers, politicians and academics.  
Are you looking for a rich exchange with other super enthusiastic young people? Join the After Summer Schools and debate! Subscribe now for only 37,50 Euro. For more information see www.idebate.org/nl or www.ascleiden.nl, or contact rkeja@idebate.nl.
