Why we must debate

Andrea Römmele discusses a new culture of political discourse on German radio RBB Inforadio.

"Debate - everybody has something to say about it," says Andrea Römmele, Professor for Communication in Politics and Civil Society, in her new book. Is there too much or too little controversy in political and social debates in Germany? Do people debate the wrong topics or in the wrong way? Harald Asel from RBB Inforadio debated debating with the author on 21 February at the Hertie School of Governance, along with Berlin correspondent for Austrian Radio ORF Birgit Schwarz, and the Secretary General of the German Green Party Michael Kellner. 

Listen to the full discussion on RBB Inforadio (in German).
