Lund Debate Society (LDS) is a recognized, non-profit, non-partisan association under the Academic Society (www.af.lu.se) operating in Lund. Our purpose is to develop and provide a platform for public debate and critical thinking.


Bringing together intellectually curious Swedish and international students from diverse academic backgrounds, LDS has become a place where differing world views meet in lively debates. Every Tuesday, public debates are held on current political topics in front of an audience ready to ask challenging questions. Debaters themselves defend assigned positions and thereby learn to truly understand ideas which might be very different from their own. Every Thursday we have training sessions where we practice case building, constructing arguments and structuring speeches. For more concurrent information visit our Facebook page.
