Malaysian Institute for Debate & Public Speaking (MIDP) is proud to announce a collaboration with the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) Malaysia and University Malaya in hosting the AICHR Youth Debate on Human Rights, from the 22nd – 23rd September 2016.

This year’s will be the third edition of Youth Debates on Human Rights organized by the AICHR, with the first being organized by the Philippines in 2013 and followed by Singapore in 2015.

The core objective of the AICHR Youth Debate 2016 is to raise awareness and enhance understanding and interest among the ASEAN youth on the ASEAN Human Rights Declaration (AHRD) and its nexus to the new global agenda on “Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”.

This youth intellectual gathering is also aimed at providing an empowering platform for the ASEAN youth to express their aspirations on issues pertaining to human rights by presenting their own thoughts, to listen to those of others and advocate for youth-led solution. This indirectly encourages interaction and friendship among youths from diverse background and affiliation in all 10 ASEAN Member States (AMS).

MIDP is tasked to run the selection process to elect 3 Malaysian youth representatives to participate at this competition and it is with great pleasure that we share you the selection process:

Phase 1 – Participants are required to submit an online application with details like their achievements and several questions on why should they be selected to represent Malaysia to this competition. Elected panel consisting of representatives from AICHR and MIDP will vet through the applicants, to pick the best 40. Application is officially open today and will close on 2 September 2016. Successful applicants will be announced and contacted directly by 5 September 2016. To apply: http://goo.gl/6V4EWj

Phase 2 – Successful applicants will be attending the selection at the National Debate Excellence Center (NDEC) on 10 September 2016 and sit through 2 rounds of persuasive public speaking, with one prepared and one impromptu round, before a final cut to the top 3. Further details will be given to participants directly.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
