WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Building on three sold-out years, the vibrant Oxford-style public policy debate series, Intelligence Squared U.S., arrives at the Skirball Center for ten provocative and informative live debates on hot-topic issues of the day. Top experts and opinion leaders take opposing positions on topics ranging from foreign policy to the art world, and the audience votes on the sharply-framed motion both before and after hearing the arguments. The results of these polls determine a winning side and serve as a clear measure of how far opinions have been swayed. This adversarial context is electric, adding drama and excitement to a rare forum where balanced, intellectually respectable opinions can be heard. Panelists for the motion: Steven Clemons, Patrick Lang and Ralph Peters Panelists against the motion: James Shinn, John Nagl and Steve Coll Moderator: John Donvan
