ESDC'23 Is Approaching
This Year's Prepared Motions
This House Supports nations actively marketing their sin cities (e.g. Ibiza, Macau, Las Vegas) as tourist destinations, rather than attempting to curtail the vices which take place in these cities.
In postconflict countries, This House Prefers the creation of a federation rather than a centralized unitary state.
This House Would implement conditional cash transfer programs to encourage pro-social behaviour (e.g. sending one’s children to school, compliance with state vaccination campaigns, etc.)
Our Chief Adjudicators' Panel
Kallina Basli has been a significant contributor to the world debate community as a Chief Adjudicator for more than 15 years. Her Eurasian Schools Debating Championship experience started in 2012 as a CA, and she has maintained being an integral part of ESDC since then. Besides her adjudication, she coaches the Greek national debate team for World Schools Debating Championship since 2009. She was also on the organization committee of WUDC 2016 in Thessaloniki.
When he is not reading dusty books in a library somewhere for his masters dissertation at Cambridge, Benjamin Goh can be found at a debate tournament. He was an Assistant Chief Adjudicator at the Macau Online WSDC in 2021, broke and had the honour of being clashed out after the octofinals of Netherlands Online WSDC in 2022, as well as ESDC in 2022. He has also CAed the Oldham Cup since 2020, the HKDO/HKPDS in 2021 and 2022, and was on the WSDC Motions Committee in 2021. Besides judging, Benjamin is also a prolific tabber, having tabbed at the 2020 and 2022 WUDC, and the 2020 and 2021 WSDC.
