International Philosophy Olympiad


International Philosophy Olympiad

The International Philosophy Olympiad (IPO) is an international philosophy competition for high school students organized by the FISP (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés de Philosophie) and supported by UNESCO. It was founded in 1993 by philosophy teachers from Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Turkey and Germany.

Students competing in the Olympiad are given four hours to write a philosophical essay on one of four topics in a language other than their own; that is, a student from France would not be allowed to write in French.
