The Public Forum Files are posted to our web page for you to download each month, 12 days after the topic is announced. You will find all of the previous PublicForumFiles located on that same web page. What a great resource for your Public Forum debaters. Featuring an insightful and helpful topic analysis followed by an affirmative case, supporting arguments and then negative arguments against the case. Our researcher focuses on the CORE issues—not tangential material and no backfiles. This is on-topic material which is exactly the objective of Public Forum Debate—to discuss current events in a way that public audiences would find engaging and relevant.
