ESDC'23 Is Approaching

This Year's Prepared Motions

Round 1
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.

Round 4
In postconflict countries, This House Prefers the creation of a federation rather than a centralized unitary state.

Round 5
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.)
