Intelligence Squared Asia is proud to present its next debate in Hong Kong, “Let The Bad Guys Be: Foreign Intervention Does More Harm Than Good.” The event will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on Monday, 6 February 2012.

 

IQ2 Asia, the region’s premier forum for live debate, will present leading voices and influential figures in a debate about foreign intervention. This discussion will raise questions like: Does foreign intervention lend itself to long-term partnerships characterized by respect and progress? Does it pose fundamentally damaging practical and moral problems? What country has the right to meddle in the affairs of another? Do human rights violations compel other nations to embrace interventionism as foreign policy? Under what circumstances may the presumption of sovereign state integrity be set aside?
