Join Michael Mander and Leo Crowe at this week’s public debate, put on by Lancaster University’s Debating Union.
This week’s motion is: This House believes the West should support an independent Kurdistan.
Kurdish is a national and cultural identity, traditionally based around a geographical area that includes sections of Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Syria. Parts of Iraqi Kurdistan are now semi-autonomous under the modern Iraqi state, but some people are calling for all of Kurdistan to be united and independent. More information can be found here.
