About Us

More than a debating association, UDP gather students from top-tier French universities who regularly train together and organize informal events in Paris. We are a very cohesive community with debating in our genes.

History of UDP

UDP is a project which was initiated around 2012 by members of various Parisian societies which already used to organise Paris Open together. It provides Parisian debaters a framework to meet and debate outside of their own societies since most of them are quite small.

A new generation of debaters reinforced the structure of UDP for the past two years and events are now held on a regular basis.

Where do we meet?

There are weekly meetings organized by most of our societies, which are open to all debaters. UDP organizes workshops every month, in addition to internal tournaments and informal outings in Paris.
