FOR FEW DAYS DUE TO REVISED SESSION, TRILOK.ORG.IN AND VSSKK NGO ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTED BY FOUNDER AND CEO, MR.TRILOK SINGH. Top Debatable Topics - YOUTH DARPAN

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.

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:
