Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

looking for a simulated country?

Well, look no further: as part of the AMANI AFRICA EURORECAMP process of building African Union capacity in the areas of crisis management, peacebuilding, and Chapter VI peace operations, a full website has been developed detailing the countries of a fictional subcontinent of Kisiwa located off the coast of Somalia. The Factbook includes:

  • historical, political, and  topographical maps for the region
  • a detailed history of the area
  • individual profiles of the five countries of Kisawa: Carana, Katasi, Mosana, Namuna, Rimosa, and Sumora.

It is an outstanding resource for anyone who wants a ready-made setting in which to conduct a simulation on fragile and conflict-prone countries.

UPDATE: Much of the materials for Amani Africa are now offline. However, I have archived the Carana scenario on PAXsims.

    Ah, fantastic. The 8th continent has now been spotted across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, coming soon to an ocean near you! Arctic Carana would be fun, we can replace the destroyed railroad with dysfunctional dog sled races.

    Yes, but can you see Russia from your (Carana) window?

    Nice post. One thing, i’m running Win 7 with the Firefox 4 Beta browser and your columns are overlapping a little. Though you may want to fix it :-)
