This House Believes That The Catholic Church Is A Force For Good

In the Chair: Michael Dunn Goekjian, President (Easter 2014)

PROPOSITION:

FR ANDREW PINSENT
is Research Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion at Oxford University. His research has focused on high-energy physics and moral perception.

Full Termcard Announced for Easter 2014

The Cambridge Union is excited to announce its Easter 2014 line-up. We are exceptionally proud of our line up for Easter, and we hope that members will have as fabulous a term at the Union as ever. We are pleased to announce that, at the time of going to press, the Union’s debate line up features a 50/50 gender split. This is a reflection of our commitment to diversity at the Union, and despite some challenges faced in securing take-up of invitations by female and minority speakers, we hope to build on this progress in the terms ahead.
