Debatepedia is the International Debate Education Association's (IDEA) free wiki encyclopedia of debates, arguments, evidence, and debate-related subjects. It is the home and future of sound debate and deliberation online. As a wiki, anyone can click "edit" and help document pro and con arguments and evidence on any topic. It is designed as a participatory resource for debaters, students, citizens, politicians. For debaters and debate teams, it is a way to gather evidence for competitions as well as a place to deposit evidence for the benefit of other debaters and the wider citizenry.
