ESU London branch are delighted to invite you to a debate at the ESU’ s headquarters Dartmouth House, Mayfair on Monday, 5 September.

The motion for this debate is: This house believes that sanctioning private individuals in order to pressure foreign states is not only legally questionable, it is also ineffective’.

Doors will be open from 6pm and the debate will begin at 6.30pm sharp.
