CRISP goes Vietnam

Last month we had the pleasure to implement a simulation game for the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV) in cooperation with Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

During the two day simulation in Hanoi, the participants took over the role of representatives of ASEAN members states and were asked to develop common statements on issues considered crucial for the future of the organisation. Those included among others a reaction to an incident in the South China Sea as well as a new framework regulation for labour mobility.

Through this experience the participants not only got the unique chance to learn about current affairs within ASEAN in an interactive manner but also practiced their general skills in negotiations and public speech. Additionally, a capacity building component was implemented, during which staff members of DAV learned how to run the simulation independently in the future.
