European School of Debate
The National Assembly House hosted the European School of Debate to mark the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, signed in 1957, which established the European Economic Community and European Atomic Energy Community, the precursors of the European Union.
Prof. Dr Vladimir Marinkovic said he was very happy to be on the jury of the European School of Debate for the fourth year running, adding that he expected most of the high schoolers who had attended it to become parliamentarians. He said that if he had to choose between two-speed Europe and focusing on equality of all the EU member and enlargement states, which was the topic of the debate, he would have to give it serious thought. He believes that we should focus on the fact that the European Union offers peace and stability and that the 70 years of togetherness should serve as an example to the entire world.
At the end of the debate, all the students who had attended the European School of Debate organized by EU Info Centre received certificates.
