GSDC 2011 ended with a blast with team UTMARA 1 emerging as the champion against NUS 1 as the runner up.

39 teams enrolled into GSDC 2011. Our adju core consist of Suthen “Tate” Thomas (CA), Sharmila Parmanand and Nur Sabrina Zaini and they have worked out a spectacular set of motions for this tournament for everyone to enjoy.

Here are the motions for the whole tournament.

Round 1: Malaysia

  • That poorer nations should reject the storage and/or processing of hazardous materials on their soil by richer nations
  • That we would impose English as the common medium of instruction in all schools
  • That we would give the profits from mineral resources exclusively to the local states/provinces from which they are extracted

Round 2: Aid

  • That we would dispense humanitarian aid through established religious organisations in recipient states
  • That we would reject microcredit schemes targeted exclusively at women
  • That first world nations would increase immigration quotas for labour migrants from target countries instead of giving them development aid

Round 3: The Kiddies

  • That we would require parents who seek to have biological children to meet the same criteria as those who seek to adopt children
  • That schools should actively erase gender differences among their students
  • That online gaming sites should restrict the number hours minors can access their services

Round 4: Military

  • That we should not punish high-ranking military officials who are publicly critical of the decisions of elected politicians
  • That we would not allow retired high-ranking military officials to run for public office
  • That we would ban military recruitment campaigns targeted at low-income groups

Round 5: Business

  • That we would impose progressive taxation on corporations
  • That civil society groups should push for greater government regulation of corporations instead of supporting voluntary corporate social responsibility practices by those corporations
  • That it is legitimate for companies to monitor their employees’ Internet usage on their IT infrastructure

Quarter-finals: Gender

  • That the feminist movement would condemn women that have reached the highest levels of politics or the corporate ladder yet done little for women in their sphere of influence
  • That the feminist movement should reject and combat religion instead of attempting to reform it from within
  • That we would abolish Ladies’ Nights in bars

Semi-finals: International affairs

  • That the U.S. should sign a non-aggression treaty with North Korea without pre-conditions
  • That NATO should assasinate Gaddafi
  • That the Mexican state should tolerate drug cartels instead of waging an all-out war against them at the United States’ behest

Finals: New World Order

  • That the United States should deprioritise maintaining its position as the most dominant global power
  • That we would recognise a universal right to secession
  • That postcolonial states should not be members of organisations based on a common colonial heritage founded by their former colonial masters
Thanks for all who have participated. Hope to see you again soon. ^^
