    Use of evidence: 6 6
    Delivery skill: 6 6
    Coherence of arguments: 5.5 6
    Responsiveness to opponent: 6 6
    Identification of key points: 5.4 6
    Comments: Excellent, though I wouldn't have ceded to watering down your proposal so quickly. Perfect (though she didn't answer your argument about culture. If you had continued it through, you could have used it to prove that the UN would be violating human rights by this policy)

    The decision is for the Opposition: Minseo Kang

    Reason for Decision:

    The proposition concedes that countries who don't want to change won't have to and countries will only have to focus on one area. This greatly decreases the advantages that the proposition is able to claim for the policy. Given little will be gained, it does not make sense to risk the harm to sovereignty.
