Does the current educational system guarantee people’s progression? This is the topic on which the finalists of the 14th Internal Debate League of the University of Barcelona had to debate. The debate took place on February 14, in the Aula Magna of the Historical Building. The closing session of the competition which, over three days of debates, gathered thirty students from different faculties of the UB.

The team Santsenques, formed by the students Raúl López Álvarez, (Political Sciences), Ana Al Bitar Dos Campos (Pedagogy), and Melania Ferrer Puertas (Sociology), competed against the team Fusión, formed by Genís Miquel Bergada (History) and Carlos Ortega Pereira (Law). The jury highlighted the participation of Raúl López Álvarez and Luis Felipe García Aristizábal (Law) with the ex aequo prize to the best speaker. Genís Miquel Bergada obtained the award to the top young promise. The latter competed in the 4th Speech Competition of the UB, which took place as part of the League.

The honorary jury of this final debate was formed by Daniel Sánchez, experienced debate speaker and former president of the UB Debate Association (ADUB); Carlos Santacana, director of the Department of History and Archaeology of the UB, and Raquel Chasserot, veteran debate speaker and winner of the Vives Network League of Debate in 2013, among other awards.
