09-10 Topics: Let the discussion begin ...

Kuswa posted the opening volley to the topic paper process on edebate. In keeping with the EC spirit of CEDA Website promotion, I'm opening a forum here. It's my understanding that the topic blog is moving to something connected to this site, so this might be a good locus of conversation in the meantime.

As Kevin noted, Gordon gave a good outline for writing a paper if you're interested:

There was also a request for some non USFG actor based papers. I noted I volunteered to work on an Immigration paper.
