About the MDR
First published in 2002, the MDR is an annual publication that aims to both inform readers and provide a forum for discussion of issues as they relate to debating and adjudicating. The MDR draws on the opinions and experiences of some of the best debaters, adjudicators and coaches from around the world.
The MDR is the world’s only international debating journal. It is a scholarly, interdisciplinary journal that has featured articles from Australia, Russia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States, as well as interviews with prominent public intellectuals and policy-makers.
