spiked is dedicated to encouraging free and open (and even loud and rowdy) debate about the big issues of our time. So we’re delighted to sponsor the Battle of Ideas - an annual festival that is dedicated to the very same, and which brings together a most impressive collection of thinkers, writers, activists and members of the public each year. Let Battle commence.

"The Battle of Ideas is a unique opportunity to learn from vigorous exchanges among some of the world's best-informed and most provocative people."
