Organising Committee

Convenor: Christine Jiang

CJ is a 2nd year History & Politics student at St John’s College. In her first year of university debating, she has broken at the Leiden Open and the Paris Open, and in another life, was a semifinalist at the UNSW IV. As an Australian import, she has unfortunately not (yet) lived up to her pedigree. Nonethless, she decided to contribute to Oxford debating in an organisational capacity by convening the IV – bringing her experience at Australs and Easters to the tournament.

Convenor: George Hames

George is a fourth year modern linguist at St Catherine’s College. His previous experience includes convening Oxford Schools’ 2016, in addition to Org Comm positions on the Paris Open, Oxford IV, and others. As a speaker he has broken at the Durham IV and the Erasmus Rotterdam Open, among others. He has previously worked as a debate coach for the École de Guerre, teaching debating to senior officers in the French military. He intends to bring this military efficiency to the Oxford IV.
