Leiden IV: The Summary

Leiden IV: The SummaryThe Leiden IV 2013, from the 22nd to the 23rd of March brought together 53 teams (including teams from DK Wien, Berlin Debating Union and Tilbury House), competing against one another in a pleasant atmosphere, which can be attributed to the formidable organizational effort of the convenors, as well as the social and open-minded attitude of the mostly Dutch contestants. The location of Leiden certainly also played a part though. It can justly be described as an idyllic small university town, perpetuating Dutch stereotypes, concerning their generally friendly and tolerant attitude and a heavy, widespread use of bicycles. The tournament consisted of ...

Rain, rain, rain - all over Germany! But the brave debaters of the Boddencup never gave in and even did their BBQ in Greifswald.

Nofretete is going to stay in Berlin – Second masters’ debate of BDU

Egyptian queen in the German capital - The motion of the second masters’ debate of Berlin Debating Union (BDU) was especially directed to a Berlin audience: "Who is owning Nefertiti?

Georg Sommerfeld and Johannes Häger (Opening Government) talked about the rude and somehow illegal methods that were used to bring the bust to Germany in 1913. They also explained that Nefertiti is an important symbol for the Egyptian history and identity and so would belong to Cairo. Juliane Mendelsohn and Niels Schröter (Opening Opposition) disagreed.

Controversial Masters’ Debate in Berlin

Reaching a broad public, debating controversial social topics, provoke thoughts – that’s the idea behind the Masters’ Debate. In this way the Berlin Debating Union (BDU) wants to perform its sociopolitical role. Furthermore the members of BDU want to show what is possible in a really good debate and that even difficult, controversial and contra intuitive motions can be discussed in a reasonable, ambitious and entertaining way. So early December's motion was a heavy one: “This house would allow disabled parents (in countries where pre-implantation diagnostics are allowed) to choose embryos with the same disability.” The Opening Government with Annette Kirste and ...

Berlin Debating Union staged Alternate Timeline Memorandum Cup

In early August, Berlin Debating Union (BDU) staged a fun tournament, the first Alternate Timeline Memorandum Cup, as is reported on BDU’s homepage. Twelve teams – some consisting of only one speaker who filled both positions of the team – debated bizarre and comical motions such as “This house would try to teach great apes the finite nature of their existence” or “This house would merge consciousnesses”. It was up to the individual speakers to decide upon the language of debate, be it English or German. In the preliminary rounds, the speakers functioned as their own jurors. That gave Hauke ...

Zu Gast beim Deutschen Meister: Punk der “Machdeburjer Orjinale”

Trotz zahlreicher, frohlockender Demonstrationen, Kundgebungen und Volksfeste im Nordosten der Republik pilgerten am 1. Mai rund 50 Debattier- und Jurierwillige zu einem Punk-Turnier nach Magdeburg. Nicht nur die Raumbezeichnungen, sondern auch das gesamte Motto dieses Punks beim amtierenden Deutschen Meister, dem Debattierclub Magdeburg, sollten unter dem Stern "Machdeburjer Orjinale" stehen. Chefjuriert wurde es dennoch Nicht-Magdeburger Originalen, nämlich von Patrick Ehmann (Berlin), Jonas Werner (Magdeburg, ehemals Berlin) und Marcel Giersdorf (Mainz). Die zeitig angereisten 20 Teams aus der, nach Patrick Ehmann, "stärksten Region in der Ausrichtung von Punk-Turnieren" debattierten in den ersten zwei Vorrunden ...
