The Motions:

Rd 1: Info Text: Risk assessment tools assess the likelihood of recidivism – repeat offending or breaking the rules of probation or parole – using statistical probabilities based on factors such as age, employment history and prior criminal record. They are used in nearly all states in the U.S. in some stage of the criminal justice process. Risk assessment tools’ recommendations are advisory – judges can disregard them.

This House would prohibit the use of risk assessment tools in criminal sentencing.

Rd 2: This House believes that Western Intelligence Agencies should rig elections in countries where the result of the election threatens democracy.

Rd 3: This House believes that Comedians should not use racist, sexist, or derogatory language, even for the purposes of satire.

Rd 4: Info Text: Respectability politics or the politics of respectability refers to attempts by marginalized groups to police their own members and show their social values as being continuous, and compatible, with mainstream values rather than challenging the mainstream for what they see as its failure to accept difference.

This House regrets Respectability Politics.

F: This House would grant the five veto bearing UN Security Council seats to the five countries that take the highest total numbers of conflict refugees.
