EIGHTEENTH SEMI-ANNUAL MUNK DEBATE ANNOUNCED
HOW DO WE RESPOND TO THE GLOBAL REFUGEE CRISIS?
Louise Arbour, Nigel Farage, Simon Schama, and Mark Steyn convene in Toronto, Canada, to debate the pressing issue of our time
The motion is:
Be it resolved, give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...
The global migrations underway across the planet are the great story of our time. So what side of the debate will Steyn be on?
Arguing for the resolution will be Louise Arbour, who served as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and as justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, and was Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. She will be joined by leading historian, political commentator, and art critic Simon Schama , the award-winning author of numerous books, including Rough Crossings and The Story of the Jews.
Speaking against the resolution will be Nigel Farage, the leader and founding member of the UK Independence Party, who was ranked first in the Daily Telegraph's top 100 most influential right-wing politicians, and recently named "Briton of the Year" by The Times. Also speaking against the resolution will be Mark Steyn, who is an international bestselling author, a Top Five jazz recording artist, and a leading Canadian human rights activist. At Steyn's recent appearance in Australia's National Parliament, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop described Mark as "sharp, observant, witty, (and) prescient."

Moderated by Rudyard Griffiths, the debate will be held at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto at 7pm on Friday April 1st. For tickets, see here. Don't miss it!
