Team China BP debaters are rooted in their Asian identity and reach out to the world. They believe in fairness and the spirit of self-improvement. They hold a deep sense of justice and community and hence they make the world better through their debates and acts of community service.
Debaters must not have reached their 16th birthday on the date of 18 March 2019.
Team China BP accepts debaters who originate from or live in the Greater China region, including the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao. Individuals must possess Chinese nationality. Exceptions apply for those whom have lost their nationality but can confirm that their parents hold proof of their Chinese identity.
Regular travel will be expected in order to facilitate preparatory training and attendance to the championship weekend itself.

We believe that whiteness wasn’t invented. It colonized. The Franchisor of The Debating International acknowledges and honors those who have been disenfranchised by the global legacy of white colonialism. The initiative strives to create space for the dismantling of existing abusive vestiges of white capital on Brown, woman, LGBT, and POC labor around the world.
