  •  It depends on the moderator (0+ / 0-)

    People often don't recognize that the value of a debate depends mostly on the format and the moderator.

    If this is to be a true Oxford style debate then it will rest on the moderator to make it work. Even then, the moderator has choices of style.

    The best debate moderator today is Tim Sebastian doing the Doha Debates. He makes sure to ask each side the questions that challenge its own assumptions.
