University of Florida International Center and The University of Florida
Model United Nations will sponsor a debate as part of The People Speak:
America Debates its Role in the World, a nationwide event. Currently
hundreds of student and community groups across the country are holding
debates focusing on U.S. foreign policy.
American foreign policy is being hotly debated at home and abroad. What’s
behind the controversies? Are we heading on the right course? Please join
us to hear panelists from the University of Florida Department of Political
Science debate issues including:
· Should the US use preemptive military force to stop the spread of weapons
of mass destruction?
· Should America focus more on issues like the environment, poverty and
· Under what conditions should the US take part in military interventions?
· Is America better off working with international institutions?
Audience participation will be encouraged during the question-and-answer
period following the formal debate.
Date: Wednesday, October 15, 2003
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Reitz Union Ballroom, University of Florida
