UGM Wins National Round of IHL Debate Again
Overshadowed by the more popular ALSA UI E-Comp, the national round of the 2012 International Humanitarian Law debate ended yesterday with host Universitas Gadjah Mada (Erwina Salsabila, Muhammad Fidhzariyan, Hadza Min Fadhli) defending the title and bagging the school's first trophy in 2012. The winners are eligible to compete on behalf of the country in the international IHL debate in Malaysia. The national round is limited by invitation and restricts participation to International Relations students. Only 19 teams joined the 2012 edition. Ironically, the international round in Kuala Lumpur is an open tournament that has attracted teams from all over Asia, including from engineering schools. This year's tournament will take place May 11-13 and one of the registered teams is called Pork Chop.
