BETA-DEBATES, organised by BETA Spain, is the space where BETA members and former MEU Spain participants analyse and give their opinion about the most recent European events
The overall objective, apart from the traditional debate, is to progressively build up an overall perspective - by collaboratively contributing previously unknown data and creating new arguments and perspectives on new issues that have just appeared on the geopolitical landscape.
