Das war das Vienna IV 2017

 VIV 2017

Über hundert Teilnehmer aus 15 verschiedenen Nationalitäten durfte der Debattierklub Wien zur diesjährigen Ausgabe des Vienna IV willkommen heißen. Bekannt als eines der besten Vorbereitungsturneire für die Europameisterschaften, waren auch dieses Jahr wieder einige der besten Debatanten der Welt Teilnehmer unseres Tunieres. Zwei Tage im wunderschönen Wien und 47 Debatten mündeten am Sonntag in einem fesselnden Finale im großen Festsaal der Universität Wien.

Das Team Dalarna A konnte sich gegen die Kontrahenten aus London, München und Oxford durchsetzen, Johan Båge und Nick Zervoudis können sich nun stolz die Champions des VIV 2017 nennen.

Die Gewinner des  Novice Finals (unter ein Jahr Debattiererfahrung) ist das Team ELTE A bestehend aus Darina Fialkina und György Nemes.

Ihnen, wie vielen anderen, werden die spannenden Debatten und schönen Momente dieses VIVs auf jeden Fall in Erinnerung bleiben; uns auch, es war uns auch dieses Jahr wieder eine Freude!

 

MOTIONS

OUTROUNDS

Round 1: This house would ban religious prison rehabilitation programmes

Round 2: This house believes that ‚Morals Clauses‘ should not be allowed in contracts

Infoslide: Morals clauses are clauses in employment contracts whichreserve the right to sever the contract if the employee engages in „morally inappropriate“ conduct in their private lives, including their conduct on social media. These are frequently found in contracts for sports and entertainment personalities, but occasionally are also found in contracts for CEOs and other employees in more conventional businesses.

 

Round 3: This house would ban embedded journalism
Infoslide: Embedded journalists are attached to military units in a combat zone to allow them to report from otherwise dangerous areas. Journalists not attached to such units would normally report from designated safe areas away from the front line e.g. „The Green Zone“ in Baghdad. Their continued participation in such schemes is regulated and subject to the withdrawal of credentials by the government.

 

Round 4: This house believes that social movements and advocacy groups should reject the support, financial or otherwise, from organisations including politicians and governments which do not share their predominant values

Round 5: This house, as China, would cease support of the North Korean regime until they give up their nuclear programme
Infoslide: China currently provides support for North Korea in the form of such things as financial and military aid and trade on favourable term for natural resources (particularly coal) as well as political support.

INROUNDS

Novice Final: This house would create a unifies history school curriculum for the European Union

Open Final: This house regrets the emergence of New Age Religions

Infoslide: „New age religions“ are Westernised versions of Eastern religions which focus heavily on ’spirituality‘ rather than traditional laws and texts. They frequently identify with the same label as the traditional religion e.g. „Buddhism“.
