Debating League of Europe launched

Debating League of Europe launchedThis weekend a big experiment started. Seven countries, seven capitals, seven tournaments, one league: The Debating League of Europe.  With the DLE, the European debating circuit could get what the circuit has almost become already anyway: A cohesive debating scene where debaters from all over Europe regularly meet and mingle. The League provides a common framework for keeping track of results of chosen tournaments across Europe to find a winner at the end of a season. The rule is simple: The biggest tournament of the capital of a country is eligible. The DLE is open for participation for every debating society ...

EUDC 2012: Cold shivers in hot Belgrade / Andreas Prischl on his impressions in Serbia

Live tweets full with tears - not only metaphoricly speaking - from the final party at Belgrade Euros were a teaser to what Andreas Prischl of Debattierklub Wien (DKW) describes at length: Freedom of speech is not a given in so many places of this world: The Serbs had to fight hard for it until very recently. Below, Andreas is giving his very personal impressions from his trip to the Serbian capital while the video by Open Communication shows how they've made Belgrade a place of exactly that: open communication. (Andreas' text was originally published on DKW's homepage.) ...

EUDC 2012: Results after day 2 in Belgrade

A little less hot in Belgrade, said the weather forecast. Only 31 degree Celsius, said the weather forecast. Must have felt like a fresh breeze after 40 degrees the day before. At least, today no one complained about the Serbian heat on Twitter. Rather, some obviously ate ice cream in between rounds for reasons of refreshment. Apart from the weather, there's more exciting news from the Serbian capital: Again, Willy Witthaut helped us gather the results for VDCH club - thank you! (Again, of some teams we only have the data after previous rounds. We're trying to collect more data.) Results after ...

EUDC 2012: Anmeldung zur Europameisterschaft

February 29 is a date not so common, recurring only once in four years. This year, it'll be a day to remember for another reason, too: Registration for the European Universities Debating Championship (EUDC or Euros) opens that day. Get your computers ready, check your internet connection and make sure eveything is in the right place on Wednesday, 12 o'clock CET, i.e. Central European Time. Convener Milan Vignjevic explains it more detailed: "That is 11:00 London/Dublin/Lisbon, 12:00 Belgrade/Paris/Amsterdam/Berlin, 13:00 Athens/Ankara/Tallinn and 14:00 Moscow/Doha time."

Belgrade Euros: Manos Moschopoulos gives an insider’s view

Somewhere around Newcastle Euros, I was sitting with Kimon Ioannides, Milan Vignjevic and Marko Cirovic when we came up with the idea of a Belgrade Euros. At the time, we had no idea what it took to run the tournament; it just seemed like a genuinely good idea. Our instincts, two years later, are probably proven right as the University of Belgrade and the Open Communication Debating Network have put together a very strong bid to host the next round of the European University Debating Championships. We ...

EUDC 2012 – Two bids and a hoax

EUDC 2012 – Two bids and a hoaxLet the competition begin: Two cities bid for hosting the European Universities Debating Championships (EUDC or Euros) 2012. The bidders are Leeds from the English county West Yorkshire and the Serbian captial Belgrade.

His bid is backed-up by the University of Belgrade. But he himself has gained a lot of experience as both debater and convenor: He broke to ESL qurters at Amsterdam Euros 2010 and is co-convenor of the Belgrade ...

Rauchen im Hörsaal und Bier für den Taxifahrer: Überraschende Einblicke beim Belgrade Open 2010

Rauchen im Hörsaal und Bier für den Taxifahrer: Überraschende Einblicke beim Belgrade Open 2010"We run a VIP service here" bekam man oft zu hören, wenn man sich dafür bedankte vom Flughafen abgeholt zu werden, die Hotelzimmer gezeigt bekam oder man anmerkte, wie praktisch doch die serbischen SIM-Karten seien, die zu Beginn der Belgrade Open 2010 an die Redner und Juroren ausgeteilt wurden, mit denen man kostenlos unter den Teilnehmern und Organisatoren SMS autauschen und telefonieren konnte. Erst das morgendliche Wecken war dann ein wenig zu paternalistisch. 52 Teams, juriert unter anderem von Will Jones (Chefjuror der WUDC 2010) und Leela Koenig (Chefjurorin der EUDC 2010) traten in der Jurafakultät der Universität Belgrad in fünf auf die ...
