IFGH Development Debate Audio Files

The first IFGH Development Debate was held on March 15 at Trinity College Dublin. The event was a great success, with teams of students from global health and development-related courses representing Trinity College Dublin (Kate Brady and Melaine Kermarc, TCD/UCD Masters in Development Practice) and NUI Maynooth (Luke O’Sullivan, MSc Immunology and Global Health and Eamonn Keaveny, BA Anthropology). The students debated the motion “Foreign Aid should be cut from countries whose human rights record is poor.” The competition was fierce, with the TCD team winning the event.

George Hook, radio broadcaster and supporter of global health work, chaired the event, with Manus de Barra and Professor Terry Barry serving as judges. The event was supported by the Tropical Medical Bureau, the TCD Centre for Global Health, Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI), and the Combat Diseases of Poverty Consortium (CDPC).

After the success of the debate, it is now the intention of the IFGH to turn this event into a nation-wide competition. We hope to see even more of you at next year’s event!
