International Debate Initiatives
Training Students and Educators From Over 20 Countries
Debate is a far-reaching activity that has numerous opportunities beyond the U.S. borders. There are a variety of programs from international debate tournaments to international debate workshops for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. International debate provides educators and students with the opportunity to improve their debate and argumentation skills, as well as to expand their horizons by exploring different global cultures. International debate fills a need for training in advocacy to advance practices to support an emerging culture of democracy in many countries. Additionally, debate education is an excellent instructional method for teaching English.
