The World Debate convenes panels that engage in a robust exchange of views on issues that matter around the globe.

In its five year history, the programme has assembled an extraordinary roll call of world leaders and global figures: Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Kevin Rudd, Felipe Calderon, Michelle Bachelet, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Robert Zoellick, Bill Gates, Carlos Ghosn and Indra Nooyi among many others.

The Debates are recorded before a live studio audience.
