World Schools Debate.

World Schools Debate is a relatively new format that analyzes social, political, and economic topics from a global perspective. Instead of a logistical debate about details and statistics, the World Schools format focuses on the big picture. Debaters analyze both the principled and practical implications of a given topic. Each World Schools team has five debaters, three of whom participate in each round. The debate features the proposition and opposition teams, who each give four speeches. Our World Schools Resource page features articles including the roles of each individual speakers, how to debate in a global context, and an overview of the format.
