    Comments: You had an excellent final speech and good overall analysis of the round. I think that you could argue that the resolution says they "should" do CJR, not "would" they do CJR, which means that the questions about would countries do this fall outside of the resolution. You had great speeches. I would focus on telling me a story about the round in the final speech and giving me a few big reasons at the start why you win the debate. Impact analysis is really persuasive to me, I think you should include more of it.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Minseo Shin

    Reason for Decision:

    At the end of the debate the proposition is the only side with substantive impact analysis. I end up agreeing with them that even if there are problems with implementation of the proposal, the chance of remedying racial discrimination outweighs it.

    I think that the opposition had good arguments about cultural differences and enforcement of the proposal, however it would help to hear about some specific countries that would drop out and the impact of that. Without specific and substantive impact analysis, it becomes difficult to determine how to weigh your arguments.

    Overall, though, this was a very good and close debate with excellent argumentation from both sides.
