The annual IDEA-BFSU tournament is quickly approaching, and so is the registration deadline. Register by December 5th to ensure your spot at this exciting event in Beijing, China. The International Debate Education Association and Beijing Foreign Studies University will host this tournament on December 11-13, 2009, at BFSU in the heart of China's capital city.
The event will feature English and Mandarin divisions in a four-team worlds-style parliamentary debate format, as well as a division in International Moot Court. Training sessions will also be provided for judges and debaters before the tournament, through which qualified adjudicators can become accredited trainers. The tournament also offers sightseeing of historic and modern sites of Beijing.
There are no registration fees. Students may enter in teams or as individuals. Each university is limited to two English team entries, but can add an additional English team for each Mandarin team they enter.
