Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

blub blub blub…

The sound you hear is me drowning in emails this week—I’m in the middle of running the annual Brynania civil war simulation at McGill, and I’ve been reading an average of 1,800 emails a day from my 100+ students. We’ve also endured two server crashes, one of which took place during a simulated coup attempt, thereby adding even more realism to the government’s orders of a communications blackout! I’ll post about it later, when it’s over, and I’ve caught up on sleep.

In the meantime, I came across this while looking for something completely different: a British Red Cross disaster simulation. It isn’t for training purposes but rather for fund-raising, but its interesting nonetheless.

You’ll also find some discussion here.
