Simulation Game KODORI for Central Asian Diplomats

Training about Peace Negotiations at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin

As part of the study visit, organized by the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin, we conducted the Simulation Game Kodori with Diplomats from Central Asia.

The Game simulates peace negotiations in a fictional country that stands in a post-conflict situation after violent efforts for independence. The game raises questions about governmental power-sharing, the situation of refugees in the country, or the restoration of the economy, that our participants had to negotiate as fictional representatives of the interest groups involved.

The nine participants from different Central Asian countries used the whole day for these questions and discussed forms of trust-building, dialogue, and the role of international actors within peace negotiations.

We were very happy about the exciting exchange and thank you for the renewed cooperation.
