What is it about?
It is the most international British Parliamentary Debate Training in 
the world with a distinguished training group. Attendees have come from 
over 26 different debating nations. The program involves a rigorous 
combination of lectures, skill exercise sessions and two practice 
debates per day. A major tournament will take place at the end. This 
year the tournament at the end of the Academy is open to all interested
