Motions:

R1: TH opposes the ownership of pets

R2: TH regrets the romanticisation of art that is pursued for non-material gain (e.g. glorifying the ‘Starving Artist’)

R3: Infoslide: All UN member states in Africa are part of the African Union (AU). In the status quo, these states have differing levels of monetary integration, ranging from independent currencies to the Common Monetary Area (CMA) where the South African Rand is legal tender in many Southern African states; all the way to the Central African Franc and West African Franc currency unions encompassing multiple nations. The AU plans to introduce a single AU-wide currency by 2023.

THW abandon African Union plans for a single currency

R4: In states with a significant ethnic minority population, TH supports the creation of political parties solely pursuing the interests of an ethnic minority group

R5: TH supports the use of mirroring* in popular culture (eg. music videos, movies, art, literature, etc.)

*Mirroring is the performance or reversal of stereotypically misogynist actions by women, often for feminist purposes: eg. reverse cat-calling.

SF: Infoslide: Increasingly, religious parties in Middle Eastern and North African states have adopted secularism, and instead established non-political religious organisations that perform religious activities formerly conducted by the party. Examples include the growing secularisation of the Enhadda Party in Tunisia and the Saigon Coalition in Iraq. The vast majority of these states have formally established Islam as a state religion.

TH supports the full separation of religious and political activities in Muslim-majority States

NF: Infoslide: For the purposes of this debate, the education hierarchy describes informal and formal prestige given to different academic disciplines and the actions of government to prefer some over others.

For example, people who pursue STEM subjects are considered ‘smarter’ or ‘more employable’ than those who pursue liberal arts subjects and many governments prioritise lucrative state scholarships and research funding for these subjects.

TH believes that governments should oppose the formation of education hierarchies

F: TH prefers a world where co-parenting is primarily non-romantic (conducted by consenting partners who have no romantic or sexual relationship, eg. friends)
