Never Argue with a Kiwi: International Exchange Debating in New Zealand.
Saxon, John D.
A report concerning the value of the international exchange debate tour of New Zealand sponsored by the Committee on International Discussion and Debate of the Speech Communication Association is given in this paper. The report provides an examination of the goals and benefits of international exchange debating, discusses how this particular tour pertained to those goals, and discusses the nature of debate in New Zealand. It concludes that the increase in international understanding and the new knowledge gained from noting a different and less formal debating style was invaluable and that the program should continue.
