Lafayette Debates

The Lafayette Debates is an academic series initiated by the Higher Education Department of the French Embassy in the United States in partnership with The George Washington University and U.S. civil society to promote intercultural understanding and relations by means of public debate on issues lying at the very heart of the Franco-American relationship.

The 2015 debates will draw contributions and expertise from vast swathes of French and American intellectual, political and business circles. Participating students will benefit from a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of thinkers addressing the question of climate change and development from a Franco-American perspective.

Join us for our championship round at 4:00 on April 19th, or for any of our scheduled rounds on April 18th & 19th or find more information about this debate on
