What is the World School Debating Championship?

"Seventy-five countries have participated at the WSDC since its inception in 1988. Of these, only Australia, Canada, England and the USA have competed in every World Championships. The most recent championships in Zagreb, Croatia welcomed 65 nations to this event, making it a truly international competition.​

The aims of the World Schools Debating Championships are to achieve excellence in debating, to encourage debating throughout the world, to promote international understanding and to promote free speech.

 

In order to further these aims, all participating countries agree that the team of any participating country may be required to debate any issue, the team of any participating country may be required to debate against the team of any other participating country and the team of any participating country is entitled to take part in the Championships on the same basis as any other participating country’s team."
