World Debate puts the important questions to those in the spotlight: representatives from global politics, finance, business, the arts and media. The programme convenes panels who engage in a robust exchange of views on issues that matter around the globe. In its five-year history, World Debate has assembled an extraordinary roll call of world leaders and global figures including Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Kevin Rudd, Felipe Calderon, Michelle Bachelet, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Robert Zoellick, Bill Gates, Carlos Ghosn and Indra Nooyi. The programme is recorded before a live studio audience.
In January 2015, there will be a special edition of World Debate focused on discussions taking place in Davos at the World Economic Forum.
