2nd Daniel H. Andreotti Memorial Student Debate

  • Date: Wednesday, February 28, 2018
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: Center for Faith and Life, Recital Hall

Student debaters, Nazai Dos Santos '19, Ismail Hamid '19, Rebecka Green '19 and Minh Anh Nguyen '20, will address the question, "Is a government's primary moral obligation to its own citizens or the people of the world?" 

With the recent rise of nationalist political parties across Europe, Asia and the U.S.A., big questions about our ethical obligations to the world must be asked. At the heart of nationalism is the belief that a government should protect the interest of its own citizens before the interest of the citizens of the world. Join the Luther College Philosophy Society as we debate whether this stance is an ethical one
