Adjudication Break
In alphabetical order broke: Adi Berko, Catherine Prasifka, Fabian Beitsma, Klaudia Maciejewska, Louis Honee, Markus Myllymäki, Martha Muir, Matt Hankin, Milla Huuskonen, Nikola Michaylov, Nishith Hegde, Rèka Elter, Roel Becker, Romée Lind, Simon Martina-Perez, Sofie Buesink and Tico Martinovic.

The Delft Open 2019 was organised by the TU Delft Debating Club with Stephan Loor acting as main convenor. The Chief Adjudicators were Roel Becker, Milla Huuskonen, Romée Lind, Matt Hankin and Sofie Buesink. Responsible for the tab was Marthe Wijfjes.

The Motions:

R1: THBT states should not promote private home ownership (e.g. tax benefits, subsidies, cheaper loans)

R2: THBT universities should prioritise teaching expertise over research expertise in the majority of cases when hiring and promoting faculty members

R3: THBT feminists should emphasise the unique contributions women can make to the military (e.g. women only task forces, “winning hearts and minds”) as opposed to emphasising that women can perform equally well to men physically in the military

R4: TH opposes the dominant social norm in favour of monogamy

R5: THBT social movements should abandon the tactic of publicly shaming individuals in order to accomplish change

SF: Infoslide: For the purposes of this debate, a “strongly involved parent” is a parent who pays extremely close attention to a child’s or children’s experiences and problems, overseeing every aspect of their child’s life and trying to control their child for their own good. “Free-range parenting” is the concept of raising children in the spirit of encouraging them to function independently and with limited parental supervision, instead emphasising the child’s own responsibility, in accordance of their age of development and with a reasonable acceptance of realistic personal risks.

TH, as an individual, would raise their kid as a strongly involved parent, instead of as free-range parent

NF: TH as the US Democratic Party would rather choose a strongly leftist candidate over a moderate candidate for the 2020 Presidential Election

F: Infoslide: For the purposes of this debate, “the shift to STEM education” refers to significant increases in both financial investment in and social valuation of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects in the past decade. This often comes at the expense of other subjects, such as social sciences and humanities.

THR the shift to STEM education
