The Motions:

Round 1: This House would remove quarterly reporting requirements for publicly traded companies

Round 2: Info Slide: Respectability politics or the politics or 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 challenging the mainstream for what they see as its failure to accept difference

This House believes that prominent institutions in marginalized communities (churches, schools, community centres, etc.) should practice the politics of respectability

Round 3: This House supports the US’s use of economic warfare (tariffs, targeted sanctions, etc.) against China in order to force compliance with the rules of the global neoliberal economic order (opening up its economy, protecting intellectual property, not engaging in currency manipulation, etc.)

Round 4: This House would remove all health restrictions for prospective adoptive parents

Round 5: Info Slide: Sovereign debt disputes are disputes between creditors (e.g. institutional investors, hedge funds etc.) and the governments they lend money to. They typically arise over interpretation of repayment terms and in instances of debt restructuring.

This House believes that developing countries should never commit to having their sovereign debt disputes settled by courts in foreign countries

Round 6:  In countries with vigorously contested campaign contribution regulations, this House believes that the political left should not contest the premise that money is speech and should, instead, contest how that speech is regulated

Quarter-Final: In a plurality of cases, this House believes that the “me too” movement should, on balance, prioritize a path towards redemption over retribution

Semi-Final: In legal systems where constitutional courts practice judicial review, this House would apply the “no precedential effect rule” to judgments by single judge margins

Novice Final: This House believes that the horrors of history are incompatible with a belief in a Judeo-Christian God

Final: This House would legalize and train sex workers specifically to work with disabled people
