Let’s debate: "Commemorations of past wars are nationalistic exercises in war glorification." The aim of the tournament is to get people – especially young people – thinking and talking about public policy issues, and understanding why they matter. The New Zealand Initiative’s mission is to promote sound public policies that will make for a better standard of living for all New Zealanders.

The Grand Final debates will be a culmination of 6 preliminary debates and two hard fought semi-finals last week. The topic have ranged from subject such as “Progressive tax rates are unfair,” to “Should New Zealand tie MPs’ and ministries’ salaries to a multiple of the average national income?”

5.30pm – Arrival (drinks and canapés)
6.00 pm – Debate
