Day 4: The Games Begin

Ioana Cionea, Director of the 2006 Karl Popper World Championship announces the beginning of the tournament, Wednesday morning in the restaurant of the Belvedere Hotel. All teams will compete in 4 preliminary rounds after which elimination rounds will begin with octafinals.

This year's tournament has adopted slightly different judging and tabulation policies than those used at forums in the past. You can review the additions here.

Debates will occur on the resolution: A policy should be adopted to promote global compliance with the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which also served as the topic for the Mixed Teams Tournament at last year's Youth Forum in Macedonia. Background information about the topic can be found on the Forum website here.

Check this blog over the next few days for up to the minute information on tournament news and results.
