Welcome to Debates International

This website is intended to serve as a comparative international resource for groups organizing candidate debates for a range of elected offices. The site includes examples of practical organizational and production information from debate sponsoring organizations from around the globe primarily members of Debates International, an informal association of new and longstanding debate groups. It also includes updates on the activities of these debate groups and highlights recent news and analysis on candidate debates.

This site is maintained by the National Democratic Institute. These resources have been made available based on the conviction that there is no one right way to organize candidate debates. Each country must develop debates that reflect its culture and politics, and all debate groups can benefit from the experiences of their counterparts in other countries. We hope that this is a useful resource and welcome your comments and suggestions.
