This year’s European Universities debating Championships will be held from 18th-24th August. Zagreb will welcome over 700 individuals from all across Europe and the Middle East for one of the toughest and most prestigious competitions of the year. Tomas Beerthuis will serve as a Deputy Chief Adjudicator during Zagreb EUDC.
Last year’s competition went very well for the entire Dutch contingent, with Groningen A (Henk van Zuilen & Stijn de Jong) making it to the ESL final, Andrea Bos, Henk van Zuilen & Bionda Merckens being among the top 10 ESL speakers, Daan Welling judging the Open final and many others reaching the out-rounds as either a speaker or a judge. Hopefully last year’s success will set a precedent for this year, with the entire Dutch contingent doing well.
