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:

Hey dear debater, debate trainer, or random great person. If you are looking for debate motions for British parliamentary debate, be it for tournaments or practice debates, this is the place to be.

This webpage has debate motions from European Universities Debate Championships (EUDC) and Worlds Universities Debate Championships (WUDC) and other BP debate tournaments from around the world.

If you would like to find motions that are not used often, maybe you should look at the World Schools Debate Championship debate motions. They are simmilar to the BP debate motions, so you can use them too.

And I would love to hear from you, if you like this webpage, or if you have a idea on what to change, please comment at the end of this article and I will answer and try to help you!

It was about time, the old website was broken so many times, was ugly and reallin insecure. This is now the new version of the website. Most of the content has been transfered and I'm sure it will be easier for you to find the content, motions for your debate tournaments.
