International Debates

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) is often approached by groups in other countries seeking to establish their own debates. For many years, the CPD has teamed with the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) to provide advice and technical assistance on all aspects of debates, using meetings in Washington, D.C., video conference calls, or small teams of experts who travel on-site to help develop plans for sponsoring and producing debates.
