[eDebate] CEDA Topic Committee Working Resolutions 1.1
Thu Jun 2 21:41:13 CDT 2005
5. The USFG should adopt a government-to-government engagement policy to
integrate the PRC in one or more of the following: United States-negotiated
regional Confidence Building Measures, nonproliferation treaties and
regimes, international economic institutions.
Regarding resolution #5, why is the phrase "united states-negotiated"
necessary? It clearly limits out certain CBMs, but I'm interested in
learning why the committee thinks that alternate agent CPs wouldn't take
care of most areas that the US doesn't currently participate in. Has the
committee seen good US key warrants for CBMs not currently involving the US?
It also seems like if the US doesn't currently participate in the CBMs
that the aff pushes, that could be good disad uniqueness. This isn't
necessarily a criticism--I haven't done any CBM reading and I was just
interested in knowing if US solvency advocates for a diversity of CBMs were
so numerous to be a concern.
3 additional questions:
Is the phrase "united states-negotiated" intended to modify everything that
What is an example of a US-negotiated regional CBM?
If the US participates in a current CBM but wasn't involved in its creation,
is that excluded from "United States-negotiated"?
Thanks for the work put into this!
