WUDC Debaters by Country

Dear Delegates to Worlds Council,
Article 22 of the Worlds Constitution specifies that country and regional representatives are responsible for verifying the eligibility of participants  entered to compete in the 2012 World Championships.  This verification concerns only whether the participants registered are legitimately enrolled at their university. 

Please contact Steve Johnson for a list of the the participants entered from your country.  Any concerns about eligibility should be addressed to the Council Executive at the contacts listed below:

Chair: Jens Fischer (
Secretary: Simone van Elk (
Registrar: Steve Johnson (

The relevant provisions of Article 22 are provided below:

Article 22

  1. Competitors who satisfy the requirements of this Article may compete in a team eligible to make the finals series a maximum of four Championships. This provision shall take effect from 6th January 1990.
  2. During the academic year of the competition, competitors shall represent the institution at which they pursue at least half of their courses toward a particular degree.
  3. Competitors shall be recognised by their university debating union or equivalent, or in the absence of such a body by the university administration.
  4. Documented evidence of the participants student status should be received by the host nation prior to commencement of the Championships. Registration shall be considered in complete until such evidence is received.
  5. Competitors must be enrolled students and must be attending classes or pursuing research in the university which they represent on the last day of term preceding the competition.
We would appreciate your immediate attention to this task so that any concerns may be addressed quickly.  Thank you.
