Demo debate: Violent video games should be banned

The trainers from the Mixed Teams Track of the 2013 IDEA Asia Youth Forum took part in a demo debate on the motion that violent video games should be banned, as part of our year-long focus on the subject of digital freedoms. The debate was judged by the participants of the Coaches and Judges Track as part of their assessment by tournament staff for the Asia Karl Popper Debate Championship. The debate showcased the Karl Popper debate format and different strategies for argumentation, refutation and cross-examination for all Forum participants.

The six debaters were:


  1. Sherzod Abdujabborov, Tajikistan
  2. Bianca Dragomir, Romania
  3. Victor Baguilat, Philippines


  1. Ioan Nascu, Romania
  2. Sinha Humayun, Bangladesh
