EUDC – The New Frontier For Asian Teams

Posted on May 18, 2009


Dear All-Asians community,

We are Oskar A. Avery and Russell A. Haswell and we have the great honour to be the Co-Convenors of the European Universities Debating Championship to be held at the University and Union Society of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK from the 1st to the 5th of August 2009.

We have the great pleasure to be able to announce that we will be accepting registrations from non-European institutions wishing to send non-breaking teams.

We have received several enquiries from teams outside Europe about their eligibility to take part. The constitution and Chair of EUDC council confirm that this is both permitted and precedented at recent EUDCs as a matter of course where spare capacity has existed. They will not, of course, be able to break in either the Open break or the ESL break (though we are likely to run a non-European final for non-European teams depending on numbers).

Therefore non-European teams are invited to register for EUDC Newcastle 2009 (1st – 5th August 2009).
