Currently in its sixth year, Debating Matters is run and managed by British Council, supported by the Institute of Ideas, UK (also project concept owners) and Wellcome Trust.
This year four cities will host Debating Matters up to the Regional Finals. The hosts are a combination of British Council’s operation in the four regions of India- New Delhi in the North, Mumbai in the West, Chennai in the South, and Kolkata in the East.The competition provides students with a uniquely challenging experience. Students are expected to confront and engage with some of the most taxing issues that the society faces today in a very rigorous yet a balanced way.
