Submitted by Alexander Cavell on 9 August 2012
The judges' calls have been handed in and the announcement of the debaters who have made it to the final of the 2012 European University Debating Championships is only hours away. Today saw 32 teams from institutions across Europe compete in open and ESL quater and semi finals.
This year's European Championships were planned and organised by the Open Communication group, a network of Serbian debate clubs that is also one of IDEA's largest regional partners.
