There are so many different debate topics, that can be used in your debate club or for yourself to practice debate, that it is usually hard to find the one topic that you would like to try. This is why this webpage exists, and here we are to supply you a big list of debatable topics. The best way that we think, to sort out the good debate motions from the topics, that are not really suitable for debate is, that you check out what tournament has used a topic. Great tournaments often (but not all the time), use great debate topics for their debaters. This is why we have collected all the great motions from the biggest tournaments from all around the world, so that you can make a selection yourself.

Here is a short list of the biggest debate tournaments,  and their topics, that you can browse. More than that, we added a big list of debate topics for you to choose from. But before that, if you would like to receive a free e-book with a list of more than 2000 debate topics, we have that for you too. So click here for a free Debate Topics e-book.

If that is not enough for you, consider debate motions from biggest tournaments around the world, like the EUDC (Europe, BP format), WUDC (the world, BP format), Australs and UADC

If you feel, that those topics are a bit too much for you, or you would like to debate a general topic, here is a short list for you, great debatable topics, that you can use:

This website is getting more and more popupar, and I'm trying to make it as easy for you as possible, to browse this webpage. This is why I just installed a mobile template so that browsing this website on the mobile devices will be much easier.

Of course, all new brings new problems, so if there are any problems with the mobile display, I would be glad if you could tell me, so that I can try to fix any problems. Just write in the comments of this article, and tell me what phone do you use and if it looks good or if there are any problems with the display.

Thanks, and enjoy the website!

Peter
