: Hi,

: Could anyone tell me what the phrase "to make an intervention into the ongoing debates" means?

: Thank you.

Make an intervention = intervene
Ongoing = current; in progress
Debates = arguments

To make an intervention into the ongoing debates is to say something or do something that makes the parties who are arguing pause or change their plans.
