On March 3 and 4, the Colegio Mayor Loyola (Madrid) arranged the 11th San Francis Xavier University Debating League, the Debate League of the Jesuit Universities of Spain (UNIJES). 16 teams from 8 universities debated the question: Should language be adapted to achieve a more just society?

The participating universities in the League were: Comillas (Madrid), Deusto (Bilbao), Esade (Barcelona) and Loyola Andalucia (Sevilla), and the university residences San Agustín (Santiago de Compostela) and Loyola (Madrid) which was the host. A team of a public university of Madrid and another major residence also participated.

This league has helped the debaters, but also all the participants, to reflect on an issue that clearly links to the values we want to transmit from Jesuit universities: the promotion of social justice and the tools to achieve it. This time with a focus on gender equality and language.

38 debates were held with 70 students. 20 volunteers and 18 judges evaluated the capacity for investigation, analysis, reasoning, exposition and persuasion of the arguments presented.
