PAXsims

Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

forthcoming “Reacting to the Past” conferences

reactingReacting to the Past” is a growing series of historical education simulations intended for college-level courses, produced by Barnard College. While none of these yet cover current or recent conflicts, several new simulations are in development, and the approach certainly could be adapted.

The project includes a regular series of regional conferences for both experienced and would-be users of the series. The latest conference announcements are below.
