For the 2009-2010 school year, the college debate topic is on nuclear weapons. The resolution states:
Resolved: The United States Federal Government should substantially reduce the size of its nuclear weapons arsenal, and/or substantially reduce and restrict the role and/or missions of its nuclear weapons arsenal.
To help debaters prepare, we put together a resource guide to background materials, publications, and organizations. Access the guide here. Included is information on START; force posture; CTBT; cost; blast effects; Iran; missile defense; NPT; North Korea; public opinion; scientific and technical skills; stockpiles; U.S. policy; a world free of nuclear weapons; and much more.
