Doha: The second day of the 7th International Universities Debating Championship (7th IUDC), hosted by the QatarDebate Center, witnessed exceptional debates in the qualifying rounds.

Participants addressed various important issues of regional and global significance, featuring topics such as the role played by state-funded news institutions in the media landscape, and the role of governments in integrating refugees into formal labor forces, both pressing contemporary issues.

Ibrahim Mahfouz, a judge who previously participated as a debater in the 6th championship held in Istanbul and was recognized as one of the top speakers, explained that the selection process for judges in this edition was characterized by precision, and they were selected based on two judging tests before the start of the championship.

He added, “this championship continues to grow, and we have seen an increase of 40 teams compared to the previous edition. Moreover, this increase has also translated into other areas including the effic
iency level of teams, as some non-native Arabic-speaking teams even managed to defeat native Arabic-speaking teams. This reflects the tremendous efforts exerted by QatarDebate Center to empower the Arabic language through debate and dialogue.” One of the participating teams is from Kuwait University, which is one of the first institutions to send its teams to international debating competitions in Arabic. Dr. Nawal Al-Kandari, the general supervisor of debating at Kuwait University, expressed her delight at participating in the 7th IUDC and stated, “there is a strategic partnership between us and the QatarDebate Center that has lasted for many years, and we have greatly benefited from this partnership, which has reflected positively on the training of teams, coaches, and judges.” This year, Kuwait is participating with four teams in the 7th IUDC, with all of them having previously won the national championship in Kuwait, she said, emphasizing their commitment to diversifying the team by including students fro
m various colleges with different skills and experiences, contributing to enriching the collective expertise of the team.

The 7th International Universities Debating Championship is held in collaboration with several key partners including the Doha Forum as a strategic partner, the Al Jazeera Media Institute as a media partner, the Translation and Interpreting Institute at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) as a translation partner, and the Doha International Family Institute as a knowledge partner.

The championship also features an exhibition with interactive booths engaging the participants by Education Above All foundation (EAA) and Qatar Reads, an initiative by Qatar National Library (QNL), along with the Center’s partners for the championship.

Russian air defenses shot down seven Ukrainian drones on Sunday, in the cities of Rylsky and Kurchatovsky, in the Russian regions of Kursk, the acting governor of the Kursk district, Alexei Smirnov, said via Telegram.

Ukrainian forces target Russian border areas almost daily with drones and missiles.

For his part, Commander of the Ukrainian Air Force, Mykola Oleshchuk, announced that Ukraine has shot down 14 Russian missiles and 31 drones Saturday night.

Since the outbreak of the military operation in Ukraine in 2022, conflicting reports have emerged regarding the extent of losses suffered by both sides of the conflict. Each side claims to have inflicted severe losses on the other, but it has been difficult to independently verify the accuracy of this information due to the ongoing fighting for about three years.
