Case 347 - Resolving the Syria Conflict - An ISD International Negotiation Simulation
The Institute for the Study of Diplomacy
This negotiation simulation is designed to help students understand the dynamics of international peace talks. Student copies provide background details of the conflict in Syria, which students will use to negotiate at a hypothetical peace conference. In this scenario, the civil war in Syria ends with President Assad still in power. Student teams will represent the major players involved in the conflict, negotiating the possible avenues for Syria’s future governance and leadership as well as the role the Kurds and other opposition groups can play in a country at peace.
