International Development Policy Case Competition
The International Development Policy Case Competition is McGill’s first interdisciplinary policy-building case competition that focuses on development issues. Students from all faculties are welcome to join and work together in effort to solve each year’s policy issue. We also welcome students’ from other universities to try out!
This year’s topic is the Refugee Crisis, giving contestants the opportunity to focus on various countries from around the world, as well as the opportunity to pick and choose their own response structures. Contestants have already had the chance to choose between 5 available countries; Sudan, Syria, Myanmar, Venezuela and Libya - and presented their initial, brief responses to the varying issues experienced by their respective cases during our first round.
The final round will take place on March 23rd at Thompson House. The final round will include presentations on the refugee crises of Sudan, Myanmar, Venezuela, and Libya by each respective team. Each team will present in front of a panel of judges (judges TBA) and following the presentations, the winning team will be announced. Food and refreshments will be provided. More details can be found on the Facebook Event.
