Confronting Global Issues: A Multipurpose IR Simulation
Shellman, Stephen M.; Turan, Kursad
Simulation & Gaming, v37 n1 p98-123 Mar 2006
This article describes an international relations simulation that focuses on threats of transnational insurgent organizations, the future of the Iraqi regime, and the effect of globalization on foreign policies. It contains both the Simulation Director's Guide and the Participant's Guide. The guides explain the steps taken to run the simulation and offer a description of the process. During the game, conflicting goal-directed participants, representing specific actors in the international system, must derive and achieve foreign policy goals given military and monetary constraints. The general rules and procedures apply to simulations involving myriad international processes and actors. (Contains 1 figure and 16 notes.)
