Zagreb EUDCThe Europen Universities Debating Championship 2014 will take place from 18th – 24th August 2014 in the capital of Croatia Zagreb. The championsships will be organised by joint efforts of the Zagreb Deebating Union, Open Communication and Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Nika Jelaska, Prospective Convener of Zagreb EUDC 2014, said: „Zagreb’s EUDC bid was motivated by a desire to bring debating back to the Balkans. Debating is an important and integral activity – it plays a role in how we engage, communicate and persuade. While in some societies debating is recognized and valued as an activity that should be invested in, in others it still lacks the institutional, financial and societal support. “

Zagreb EUDC is setting a team cap of 220 teams. Institutions will be required to send N-1 judges (1 judge for every 2 teams).
