The EUDC 2017 motions so far:

R1: This house believes that the US should ban extremist groups (e.g. the KKK and neo-nazi groups).

R2: This house believes that the WTO should allow developing countries to impose policies aimes at protecting domestic industries, even at the expense of harming international trade.

R3: This house regrets the rise of the ‚Sharing Culture’ (a culture which encourages the frequent posting of both mundane and intimate details of one’s life on social media platforms, and the commenting on and reacting to others posts of this nature).

R4: This house believes that states should significantly fund female-only tech companies.

R5: This house, as Israel, supports the Jewish People’s Intelligence Service Doctrin.

Info text: The Jewish People’s Intelligence Service Doctrin is a proposal which states that the Israeli Intelligence service should have a significant responsibility not only to Israeli’s citizens’ security, but also to the security to the Jewish communities abroad. If this doctrin were adopted, Israel would use significant resources and launch potentially violent operations in order to keep Jewish people safe internationally.

R6: This house supports universities treating students like customers (e.g. by allocating significant ressources to improving students’ lifestyles, and granting students influence over university decisions and the content and delivery of the course curricula).

R7: This house believes that Western medical institutions should neither cooperate with, nor use the data produced by, non-Western medical institutions that do not meet Western standards on human clinical trials.

Info text: Non-Western medical institutions are becoming increasingly competitive within the field of human clinical trials and now constitute a major share of the world’s scientific output. These trials operate under local medical standards that are less stringent than Western ones.

R8: This house believes that LGBT groups should actively seek to include Side B christians.

Info text: Side B christians are christians who identify as experiencing same sex attraction but nevertheless believe that homosexual sex is sinful, and therefor attempt to remain celibate.

R9: This house supports the creation and use of Lethal Autonomous Robots.

Info text: Lethal Autonomous Robots are fully autonomous military weapons that can select and engage targets without human intervention.
