Navarra in a global debate

Publicado Participantes debate 26 diciembre 2018.jpg

Two students from the Universidad Pública de Navarra (UPNA), Iñigo de Carlos Artajo and David Garciandía Igal, both studying a double degree programme in Business Administration and Management and Law, are participating in the "World Universities Debating Championship (WUDC) 2019", the largest international debating competition in the world for university students.
The competition will be held from today until the 4th of January at the University of Cape Town (UCT). They will take the opportunity to collaborate with NGO Merakibay, which is promoted by young Spanish graduates.
The "WUDC has been organised annually since 1981. In the format called "British Parliament", four teams of two people (two from " government " and two from "opposition") face each other with a subject that is known only 15 minutes before the start of the debate (the positions "in favour" and "against" are decided by draw). The competition consists of 9 rounds in what is called the "Swiss system", where teams of a similar level compete, until the best 48 contestants go directly to the final. In addition to the prize in the general category, the winning teams are also distinguished in "English as a second language" (intended for students who have lived at least 6 months in a country whose first language is that language) and "English as a foreign language" (category in which UPNA students will take part).
