Project Goals

Apart from conveying information about the conflict itself, the core issue of this simulation is to impart knowledge about political processes and dynamics of conflicts. The methodological approach of the simulation is very valuable in order to experience the inner logics of politics. It also helps to obtain an inside view of the inherent necessities political actors are faced with. The intense experience of the simulation and cooperating during the seminar provides a perfect framework for networking and a starting point for future regional collaboration. The simulation allows the participants to experiment with different kinds of strategies. This lead to a variety of new perspectives and options. During the simulation, negotiation skills and other capabilities like teamworking as well as problemsolving strategies, are practiced and conveyed.
