World Schools Debating Championships
Excellence in debating. International understanding. Freedom of speech.
The World Schools Debating Championships (WSDC) is a truly global competition for high school debaters. The Championships take place each year in a different country, hosted by a national debating body. Recent venues include Peru, Qatar, Seoul, Athens and in 2012 Cape Town, South Africa.

All debates take place in English. Each country can submit a squad of 3-5 eligible students to debate social, moral and political issues.

Past patrons of the Championships include Nelson Mandela and Tony Blair.
