In October, the University of Dar es Salaam will host the 6th edition of East African Community University Students’ Debate.
According to organisers, this debate Model is interactive and representational.
This style of debating aims at educating, discussing and making resolutions among the Youth in East Africa to nurture a bond of “East Africaness” with a distinct East African identity that is highly desirable.
Students will debate under the theme; “Border management to address migrant smuggling and corruption at borders for stability and social economic development in the East African Community: Role and Implications for the youth”.
Debate lays emphasis on the use of the value and policy approaches given that the EAC Integration is people-centred and Private Sector driven, hence giving the youth an opportunity to come up with policies that will enable the Secretariat develop programs and initiatives aimed at empowering youth in the region.
The debate provides a platform to promote dialogue among the youth and interest them in advocating for regional integration initiatives.
The Debate aims to promote continued participation of the youth on issues of the EAC integration; encourage networking among university students/youth to enhance regional integration; as well as prepare the youth for future leadership roles at regional and international levels as they hold the mantle as Ambassadors of EAC integration in the region.
