Introduction

The League of Young Voters: Debate, Engage, Vote! event took place from March to May 2014 to debate themes that are relevant to young people in the run up to this year’s European Elections.

A series of public debates by university students from the 28 European Member States culminated in a final European Cup debating tournament that takes place in the European Parliament, Strasbourg, from 9 – 11 May 2014 as part of the European Youth Event. 

The final winners were Poland B (Karolina Partyga and Michael Shapira), with Croatia (Nika Jelaska and Matija Medvidovic) as the runners-up. Nika Jelaska also won the best speaker prize for her performance during the preliminary rounds, followed by Karolina Partyga and Paul Baird (Scotland).
