I’d like to inform you about the 20th edition of the Dutch Anglo-Saxon Parliamentary Debating Institute (DAPDI) hosted at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
DAPDI has a nice tradition to build on: our yearly five day summer course featuring 3 days of top level debating workshops and a 2 day tournament (the serious bit), topped with amazing evening programmes including: BBQ, Baja Beach Club and more (the fun bit).
We will fly in tutors from the Oxford and Cambridge Unions in the UK. They give the workshops and judge the tournament. All debaters are placed in a group of 8-12 people with similar debating experience to ensure workshops of the right level. So whether you’ve already won a few IV’s, or never debated before: DAPDI has something for you to learn.
The tutors of this year’s DAPDI are among the finest debaters Oxford and Cambridge have to offer. Being finalists and even winners of the European Universities Debating Championships (EUDC) and World Universities Debating Championships (WUDC), there are none better able to teach you the art of debating.
Lewis Iwu (current world champion)
Steven Goodman (upcoming fresher)
Neil Dewar (worlds Quarterfinalist)
Jo Box (director of debating at Cambridge)
Daniel Warents (worlds Finalist, European Finalist)
Giles Robertson (European Champion 2007)
The DAPDI 2008 will be held from 25th – 29th august. For more information and registration send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
