Motions:

R1: THW censor any music which promotes derogatory attitudes towards women.

R2: THB the EU should offer automatic membership to any constituent member that leaves the United Kingdom.
Infoslide: For the purposes of this debate, “constituent member” refers to England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

R3: THR the self-commercialisation of indigenous culture. (For example, Maori “village tours”, Aboriginal art fairs, and Native American casinos).

R4: THWB all forms of self-incrimination.
Infoslide: Self incrimination, in law, refers to the provision of evidence or making statements that implicates or connects an individual accused of crime to the crime. Usually, countries do have some protections (on paper) against compelled self-incrimination, such as the right to remain silent, Article 20(3) of the Indian Constitution, etc. For the purposes of the debate, acts that would constitute self-incrimination would include confessions by individuals during police interrogations, testifying against oneself in court trials and agreeing to plead guilty in exchange for a lower sentence or sympathetic treatment from the courts (plea bargains).

R5: THB that the countries of former Yugoslavia should create a common history curriculum and textbook.

SF: THR the existence of caste-based political parties in India.
Infoslide: There is an entrenched problem with the casteism in India. There are regionally dominant caste-based political parties that explicitly claim to represent the interests of marginalised castes such as Dalits. Examples of some such parties include Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh, Puthiya Tamilagam (PT) in Tamil Nadu and Republican Party of India (RPI) in Maharashtra.

Pro-Am Final: TH, as the survivor community, would choose not to.
Infoslide: The earth has been devastated by an environmental cataslysm. Nearly all of the human population is gone, government and infrastructure is functionally non-existent, and life is harsh. A small survivor community persists, with just enough numbers to reliably carry on the human race.

F: THW welcome an isolationist America.
Infoslide: For the purpose of this debate, the term isolationism refers to all aspects of foreign policy, including trade, military, and diplomacy.
