The College Public Forum Debate League (CPFL) releases two topics each season—typically one domestic and one international, though not necessarily in that order.
The fall topic is used for the CPFL Season Opener, Fall Invitational, and Fall Championship; the spring topic is used for the CPFL Spring Opener, Spring Invitational, and National Championship. The exact wording is released in advance, as well as a free Starter Packet with sample cases and additional evidence on the topic.
Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its regulation of generative artificial intelligence
We are soliciting community feedback on the Spring 2024 international debate topic through
Monday, October 2, 2023, when submissions close for review. Proposals for Spring 2024 should be internationally focused and as detailed as possible. All input is welcome and appreciated!
