Quin és l'impacte dels debats electorals? Seguiment del debat del #28M a betevé

The Fundació Catalunya Europa and the Colegio de Arquitectos de Catalunya organised on Monday, 15 May, the follow-up to the first televised debate within the 28-M electoral campaign of the municipal elections in Barcelona.

What is the impact of electoral debates? What are they for? Can they change the vote? Given the proliferation of channels and the avalanche of messages we receive every day, what is the effectiveness of the debates? Do they influence electoral behaviour? Do they contribute to the democratic quality of public debate?

Issues that we have anatulated with three experts in politics and communication:

  • Jordi Amat, writer, philologist and literary critic.
  • Neus Tomàs, journalist and deputy director of

Núria Orriols, political scientist and journalist for the newspaper ARA.
The director of the Catalonia Foundation Europe, Dolors Camats, has been in charge of moderating the debate that has been held in the auditorium of the College of Architects of Catalonia (Plaça Nova, 5)

Those attending the debate were able to comment during the broadcast of the Betevé debate via a Telegram chat.
