AMO in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy Prague and the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art organizes the U.S. presidential debate simulation with a participation of selected high school students. The debate will be complemented with a panel of experts dealing with campaigns and  U.S. presidential elections. The event in Prague is open to public.

The debate will take place just one day before this year’s U.S. presidential elections with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump running for presidency.

Opening remarks:

  • H.E. Andrew H. Schapiro, U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic

Speakers:

  • Silvie Lauder, Contributing Editor, Respekt
  • Anna Shavit, Head, Department of Marketing Communication and PR, Charles University in Prague
  • Tomáš Klvaňa, Visiting Professor, New York University Prague

Chair:

  • Daniel Lošťák, AMO

Selected high school students will be representing the GOP or the Democratic Party. Participants will be expected to behave and argue within the reasonable limits characteristic for “their” party about selected topics such as the U.S. domestic, foreign and economic policy.

Participants:

  • Matěj Frouz, Gymnázium Stříbro
  • Adam Urban, Gymnázium Písnická, Praha
