Students take part in self running, team based simulations that immerse them in IR concepts for 5 - 15 weeks of the semester with dozens of options including military action, intelligence operations, politics, trade, country building, and diplomacy. Statecraft assigns students to teams automatically at the start of your simulation through our Foreign Policy Attitude Test that groups students into country teams based on decision making chemistry.
Simulations cover over 50 IR concepts in:
International Political Economy
Introduction to International Relations
This is our flagship simulation that started it all. The Intro to International Relations Simulation covers over 50 IR concepts while immersing students in a virtual world where they must grapple with terrorism, climate change, humanitarian issues, trade, international political economy, development, war, espionage, and diplomacy for 5 to 15 weeks of the semester.
