I used Statecraft in my large (150 person) Introduction to International Relations, and the simulation was a great hit with my students. It allowed them to apply the concepts that we were learning in class to their on-line Statecraft world and to grapple with the difficult decisions foreign policy leaders face on a daily basis. Students came away from the experience not only with an enriched understanding of international conflict and cooperation, but also with a better grasp of the nexus between domestic and international politics. More than anything, participating in Statecraft made students think critically about their own prior beliefs about international politics. It was also fun! The students got to meet one-another (a daunting task in a room of 149 other first year students), and I frequently spotted students playing Statecraft all around campus. I’m looking forward to using Statecraft again!.
