Closer to Oxford, 9th Round – Sibiu, Romania, 2013
Motion to debate: It`s time that fines are proportional to the income.
Closer to Oxford was an initiative launched by ARDOR that aims to promote various instruments of debate, argumentation and critical reading among students. The project was designed to take place between April 2013 and March 2014 in seven university centers from Romania and Moldova: Bucharest, Cluj, Iasi, Sibiu, Timisoara, Chisinau and Balti. EAD Society hosted the 9th round of the project in Sibiu and contributed to its visibility and impact along the civil society.
The “Oxford” Model represents the support to a community where students, teachers and different representatives of the civil society participate in public debates based on free exchange of ideas. The project gathered over 1000 participants in Romania and was designed as “Best Educational Project” at the Civil Society Gala in 2011.
Structure: round of online debate, seminar of critical reading, public debate (teams formed by students together with academia/civil society representatives)
