Charles university debate club

Charles University Debate Club was founded in 2002, and meets on a weekly basis to hold debates in the British Parliamentary style. In this debating format, four teams of two (two teams on side government, two on side opposition) do their best to persuade the judges and audience of their arguments on the motion provided. The motions we debate are relevant to important current issues in society and international politics, from the legalization of euthanasia to anti-terrorism policies. Debating cultivates skills of analytical thinking, precise expression of ideas, and rhetorical style. Our club is open to all students of Charles University as well as anyone with an interest in debating.

Regular Meetings

We invite all those interested in debating to our regular meetings, which take place every Wednesday at 6:30 pm in room 010 at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University. We always inform in advance about any changes in time or location on our social media. 

To attend the meeting, you do not need to have prior experience with debating. We will explain everything you need to know and introduce the rules to you so you can get involved right away and try the debate out yourself. Or you can just observe during the first meeting. 

If you plan to come, please sign up on the most recent list in this sheet. The registration sheet helps us organize the meeting efficiently. The link to the sheet is permanent, but it is always necessary to find the correct meeting date on the bottom bar. 

If you plan to attend the debate not during the academic year, please check our social media to see if, and possibly when and where, meetings are held during the holidays. 


If you want to get in touch via email, feel free to message


We also have a facebook page that we make frequent use of. Please note that posts on this page are in Czech and Slovak, but we can communicate with you in English via any posts or messages here.
