Breaking Judges:

Olivia Sundberg Diez, Emma Lucas, Raffy Marshall, Eliot Pallot, Nathan Chalk, Craig McDonald, Rory Flynn, Roel Becker, Chloe Romanis, Becky Elkington, Raluca Vacaru, David Bender, Tim Sharpe, Declan Leahy, Catrin Richards, Griffin Fallow, Nicole Liu, Radko Nedyalkov, Nicola Harvey, Dean Foley, Flora Spielman, Gemma Foster, and Mark Oliver Wilson.

The Motions:

Rd 1: This house believes that countries with overcrowded prison systems should conduct large-scale releases of offenders on minor sentences.

Rd 2: This house supports natalist policies.

Infotext: Natalism is the promotion of parenthood. Natalist policies typically seek to create financial and social incentives for individuals to reproduce (for example granting tax breaks or priority access to services to parents or spending heavily on childcare provision).

Rd 3: This house supports collective strike action by migrants against anti-immigrant policies.

Rd 4: This house, as the IMF, the ECB, and the World Bank would remove all international financial assistance to Greece and redirect the financial resources to cash payments directly to the poorest 10% of the global population.

Rd 5: This house supports the extrajudicial killing by police of suspected leaders of mafia organisations.

QF: This house, as an attractive educated woman, would choose to marry for money rather than pursue a career.

ESL/PA-F: This house believes that the opposition to populist leaders (e.g. Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, Geert Wilders, Frauke Petry) should cease employing comparisons to the rise of Hitler.

SF: This house believes that the EU should decriminalise people smuggling

Infotext: It is not a criminal offence for an asylum seeker to pay a smuggler, if this is their only way to reach safety and apply for asylum.

Smuggling (i.e. directly or indirectly helping a non-EU citizen to enter or live in an EU country) is illegal and punishable with prison.

Smuggling becomes human trafficking and fraud if migrants never give their informed consent to cross a border. Human trafficking is illegal.

Recklessness, manslaughter or murder is separate from smuggling and is also illegal.

F: This house believes that militaries in new democracies should act as guardians of secularism.
