WSDC Capetown 2012 Prepared Motions

I apologise for the delay in releasing the prepared motions for WSDC 2012. But now everything is finalised, and here they are!

Preliminary Rounds:

  • This house believes that newly democratised Arab nations should not allow religious parties to participate in elections
  • This house believes that the feminist movement should seek a ban on pornography
  • This house believes that developing nations should place limits on internal urban-rural migration
  • This house believes that states should enshrine legally actionable socio-economic rights

Proposition and opposition sides will be announced with the draw in early December. Please note that the motions committee has not as yet decided which motion will be debated in Round 1, which in Round 3, Round 5 and Round 7.
Grand Final:

This house regrets South Africa's decision to use the Truth and Reconciliation Commission rather than prosecuting perpetrators of crimes committed under Apartheid.

I would like to thank the motions committee for all the work they have put into setting these motions. I hope that you all enjoy researching and preparing cases for these debates!

Warm regards,
Irene Pampallis
