UI Debaters Win National IHL 2014, Ticket to KL Round

NDC IHL 2014 Champions - UI 
#1 Universitas Indonesia (Colley Windya, Garlan Archista, Egalita Irfan) triumphed in the 6th National Debate Competition on International Humanitarian Law, giving their school its first ever victory in this tournament. In the final, they knocked down the motion "This House Believes That International Humanitarian Law Is Losing Its Relevance After 150 Years" that was proposed by dark horse #2 President University (Made Yaya Sawitri, Gilang Agam, Putu Ayu Mas Amanda). UI's Egalita Irfan was the best speaker in the final.

Universitas Gadjah Mada debater Syadza Annisa came out as the best speaker of the tournament although her squad fell in the quarterfinal. UGM teams have grabbed 4 out of the 6 national IHL titles, including last year's. This national contest is exclusively for students of International Relations. The victory also grants the UI trio entry to the IHL debate competition in Kuala Lumpur where the participants are not limited to a specific field of study.
