Worlds as a media coup / Manuel Adams and Annette Kirste talk to Achte Minute

Worlds as a media coup / Manuel Adams and Annette Kirste talk to Achte Minute“Embracing Dissent“ is the motto of the WUDC Berlin 2013 – “We believe this reflects the enlightening and liberating clash of ideas that shaped European and German history - and, of course, what makes debate relevant and exciting”, the Facebook site of WUDC Berlin 2013 announced. No doubt, there is a natural dissent between the fractions of a parliamentary debate. Yet, there might also be dissent during the preparatory phase of the World Universities Debating Championships (WUDC or Worlds), for instance in a heated debate about the motto. However, consent was the motto when now WUDC convenor Patrick Ehmann travelled the ...

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 ...

Magdeburger debattierten beim “Les-Bi-Schwulen Referat” über Homo-Adoption

Sind Kinder bei Homosexuellen gut aufgehoben? Vielleicht sogar viel besser als bei heterosexuellen Paaren? Ist das Adoptionsrecht nur für gemischtgeschlechtliche Paare da, die ihren Kinderwunsch nicht selbst erfüllen können? Um diese Fragen drehte sich eine Showdebatte des Debattierclub Magdeburg am Montagabend. Die Veranstaltung wurde organisiert von "DykeAndGay", dem "Les-bi-schwulen Referat" des Studentenrats der Otto-von-Guernicke-Universität Magdeburg. Miriam Hauft und Stefan Kegel setzten in der Regierung ganz auf die vollwertige Gleichbehandlung von hetero- und homosexuellen Paaren und hoben hervor, dass sich homosexuelle Paare viel stärker in die Erziehung ihres Adoptivkindes einleben könnten, weil der Wunsch und damit auch der Wille zu einer Adoption ...
