October 5, 2016 — October 7
Our local hosts in Berlin are Hans-Joachim Wilke, Michael Putzier and Peter Vajkoczy.
There will be two debates about common, but hopefully stimulating topics with the intention to stimulate thinking and discussions on areas of controversy and to explore areas of consensus. The audience will be asked for their vote on the case management before and after the presentations to see if they could be persuaded to change their views as a result of the arguments presented.
