Training for young diplomats from Iraq

In November 2017, we conducted our simulation game Kodori for young diplomats from Iraq in the frame of the ‘Training for International Diplomats’ program of the German Federal Foreign Office. During the simulation, the participants engaged with a complex post-conflict scenario and had the task to negotiate a sustainable peace agreement from the perspective of their roles.
