Parassat Open established quotas of 15 teams from Central Asia and 25 other at-large teams, with slots being allocated on a basis of the competitive accomplishments of the teams. This was because, as the organization team described, “debaters in CA have limited opportunity to debate in English, as we have a small number of such tournaments and are often unable to go to other cities. This is a unique chance to play with debaters from other countries.” The tournament featured 36 teams of which 10 were Pro-Am eligible. Tab was run by Abylay Boranbay. The organization team that hosted the tournament was Gaini Ibragimova and Sagida Zhatkanbayeva. The CA team consisted of Joona Suhonen, Alikhan Kazenov, and Dmitri Nilov.

Motions:

R1: Infoslide: A flag carrier airline is a prominent airline that has a preferential position in its home country. Generally, there is no more than one flag carrier airline per country. They are often subsidized by the government and have government-given preferential rights or privileges for international operations. Examples of flag carrier airlines include Air France, Aeroflot, and Air India.

THW not subsidize national flag carrier airlines

R2: Infoslide: You are a writer working on a highly dramatic novel, with its own fictional world, vastly different from ours. This is your last book, and you believe it will be the best piece you’ve ever written. Mid-way through writing, your main character suddenly comes to life in the real world exactly how you envisioned them in the novel. You discover that if you continue writing, you will be able to alter the characteristics and skills of this new real-life person. If you stop writing, however, the person will still continue living, but the only way for them to adapt to the real world will be through their own experience.

THW stop writing the novel

R3: THBT the feminist movements in Central Asian states should also focus on gender issues that affect men (toxic masculinity etc.) rather than exclusively focus on the issues that affect only women

R4: Infoslide: Venezuela has an autocratic socialist government lead by president Nicolas Maduro. Currently, the country is experiencing significant political and economic instability due to international sanctions, sagging oil prices, and coup attempts allegedly backed by the USA

TH as Nicolas Maduro would seek to voluntarily step down from power

R5: Infoslide: The Mormon church is one of the most active churches in terms of proselytizing its religion worldwide through missionary activity. Missions are usually performed by young men and women (recent school graduates, around 18-20 y.o.) who spend up to two years of their lives living and converting people in randomly assigned countries. Going on a mission is regarded as a virtue and Mormon children are socially conditioned to see it as one of the fundamental aspects of fulfilling their religious duties. Missions are mostly financed by missionaries themselves or sometimes partially financed by the church. For the purposes of this debate, this concept is described as a “rigorous mission scheme.”

THBT it is in the interests of organized religions to adopt the “rigorous mission scheme”

SF: Infoslide: Eurasia Economic Union (EEU) is a union of Armena, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. The development level of the EEU economies varies, with some also being more oil-oriented and some more agriculture -oriented. A significant portion of the trade of the EEU countries is conducted with other states of the union. 

THBT members of the Eurasian Economic Union should introduce a new common currency.

Pro-Am F: TH as a young individual in an authoritarian country who wants to improve their society would seek to do so by joining the ruling party as opposed to operating outside the establishment.

F: THO the commercialization of competitive debating (such as for profit debate training, paid workshops, paying IAs a salary, paying pros to speak with wealthy beginners, etc)
