Day 2 (12 March 2022)
Day 2 marked its start with a live UN Briefing by Dr. Abraham Joseph, who had served notably with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The briefing covered the new challenges in the international society based on the works of the United Nations during the past and current environment.
All participants, based on Day 1's debate preparations, have actively participated in the Academic Debate on three topics, assigning themselves either to Affirmative or to Negative. Two sides for each topic spoke for and against the given topic (listed below) within the allocated time, developing their ideas with logic, working examples, statistics, and quotes to support themselves.
