But why are they in Lund?
They will play a critical role in our international debate tournament, Lund IV, which takes place this upcoming weekend! What is their role? They decide what topics our participants will debate during the tournament and they judge the debates. It is a very difficult task to weigh arguments against each other and to decide who wins a debate – especially in our style of debating, the British Parliamentary format!
