Thailand WUDC 2020 – Outrounds

Written by: Mike Weltevrede

The outrounds of WUDC 2020 hosted a variety of motions. Unfortunately, these motions were only published as video titles to the streams (not to the tab) and the corresponding infoslides were not provided. Moreover, not all outrounds were streamed (probably because the speakers in those debates did not consent). Nonetheless, we will provide you with the motions that are known to us and the results of the three finals.

Edit (January 7, 2020): The motions tab has just been published to Tabbycat. The missing motions have been added to this article.

We will soon post some interviews with the Dutch participants at WUDC. For now, leave your comments on these motions and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

PS: Huyen and Angela judged the ESL and EFL semifinals, respectively!
