[Leiden Novice 2019] On the utterly sentimental notion of love

It was cold early morning when we set off from the Tilburg station to Leiden on the 30th of November. Being our second tournament, we were visibly excited for the Leiden Novice tournament, especially after the Maastricht tournament that took place earlier in the month. The following are a few observations I made as a participant of the tournament.

With WUDC having concluded, we look back with the participants. How did they experience the tournament? What were their favourite motions? Did they spend more time in Thailand and surroundings and how did they like it?

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!

The 40th edition of the World Universities Debating Championships (WUDC) has started. This time, it takes place on the campus of Assumption University in Bangkok, Thailand.

There are two (former) Dutch debaters judging the competition: Huyen Nguyen (formerly EDS, also serving as language officer) and Angela Portocarrero (formerly UDS). In this article, we will give a short insight into the first three rounds of the competition. In summary, Saskia and Nikola were able to snatch 6 out of 9 points and both Angela and Huyen were honoured to chair all three rounds.

Historische overwinning op NK Debatteren 2019

Geschreven door Jan-Pjotr Komen

Het zonnetje scheen volop, de treinen reden amper en de Eredivisie nadert z’n ontknoping. Toch kwamen er ongeveer 70 debaters en 20 juryleden afgelopen weekend naar Amsterdam voor hét NK Debatteren 2019. Ieder jaar organiseert één van de Nederlandse debatverenigingen het NK en dit jaar was Bonaparte aan de beurt om het meest prestigieuze toernooi van het land te mogen organiseren. En waar beter dan de locatie waar ook altijd het mooie Bonapartiaans Debattoernooi wordt gehouden, namelijk in het Cartesius Lyceum. De organisatie lag dit jaar in handen van Ezra Glasbergen, Britt van Lochem en Jan-Pjotr Komen. Het CA-team bestond uit Ybo Buruma, Linsey Keur, Lizzy Groenenberg, Danique van Koppenhagen en Josse van Proosdij. Tijd om te beginnen!

Debater Story: Anna in Prague

The expectations I had for my very first international debating tournament were low. I just hoped I would have a nice time and that I would win at least one debate. I wasn’t expecting to see much of the town or to find new friends. I went to Prague Debate Spring with 14 other students from team Netherlands Young and I had an amazing time.
