Alfred Snider is reporting that efforts to reunify the Asian debating tournaments is now back on the agenda. The All Asians Council has voted in favour of a new unity constitution to make it easier for the All Asian and AUDC championships to work together.
After accepting the new constitution MMU have bid to host a "unity" tournament in 2009. This bid was accepted as the 2009 All Asians.
They also plan to bid at AUDC and Australs (what that means for Austral-asians isn't yet clear).
East West University already announced that they would bid to host AUDC in 2009 so it looks like some negotiations will have to happen if the unity bid is to pass the next hurdle. Keio and Monash have already announced bids for Australasians in 2009.
