Welcome to the New Age – Austria rocks SOAS IV 2012

Welcome to the New Age - Austria rocks SOAS IV 2012There is enough to say about SOAS IV 2012 itself. The tournament was outstandingly well organised for a British tournament. That is to say that it would still be considered very badly organised if we were to apply continental European standards. However, there was food and hostel accommodation close to the campus. With 140 teams SOAS IV is one of the largest tournaments on the Island. Because it enjoys a friendlier reputation than Oxford or Cambridge with regards to how it treats participants, about 30 ESL teams traveled to London to debate at SOAS IV. 3 of them were sent ...

Because "it is time to recognise that there is only one area of interest that billions of people follow passionately around the world", as the org com puts it. CAs are Manos Moschopoulos, ...

"London Australs is a new debating tournament with a difference. It's different because it will introduce a new style of debating to the European circuit, featuring two, three-member teams.

Neben Europa- und Weltmeistern und diversen Europa- und Weltmeisterschaftsfinalisten auch dabei: Drei Teams mit Beteiligung aus VDCH-Landen: Bonn (mit einem St. Galler Redner), Potsdam (mit einem Berliner ...
