Argument: the first six debates

April 2011

The first six debates in our regular Argument section.

Every month we invite two experts to debate, and then invite you to join the conversation online.

Every issue we invite two experts to debate a hot button issue in The Argument, and then invite you to join the conversation online, reading all your comments and selecting the best to print next issue. These are the first six debates we featured.

Is it ever right to buy or sell human organs? - October 2010
Are public service cuts justified? - November 2010
Should nation-states open their borders to refugees and migrants? - December 2010
Is being vegan the only green option? - January 2011
Is it OK for protesters to damage property? - March 2011
Is ‘ethical wealth’ a contradiction? - April 2011

This feature was published in the April 2011 issue of New Internationalist. To read more, buy this issue or subscribe.
