The Bickel & Brewer NYU Global Debate Competition returns in 2014-2015, pitting undergraduate debate teams from all fourteen NYU global sites against one another in a contest that will award prizes totaling $37,000.
The topic for the 2014-2015 Bickel & Brewer Global Debate at NYU will be: “Resolved: The world is safer now than it was a decade ago.”
The Global Debate Program begins this fall semester with the formation of teams, with students registering for the competition in November. NYU faculty, graduate students, and representatives from the Bickel & Brewer Foundation will serve as judges. In the spring semester, “kock-out” rounds will be held at the New York campus and through the use of video teleconferencing connected to other global sites to reduce the field to a group known as the “Sweet 16.” The final rounds on the NYU campus will culminate in the Championship Debate and an awards ceremony with prizes to the top sixteen teams.
