Jammu-Kashmir Simulation: Developed and facilitated by faculty and staff of the Army War College, this weekend long simulation takes the form of a strategic-level negotiation exercise at an internationally sanctioned peace conference. The conference has been called to break the long-standing conflict in Jammu-Kashmir. Participants role-play members of a diplomatic mission on one of seven negotiation delegations invited to the conference. The teams are charged by their governments with negotiating a solution advantageous to their national interests. Each team is mentored by a member of the university faculty, an invited regional subject matter expert, or a retired U.S. Ambassador. Exercise play is open-ended, run by the participants themselves without injects or predetermined outcomes – the situations are complex enough on their own merits to drive the exercise.

The immersion allows students to experience:

• Regional Situation Analysis

• Negotiation Techniques

• Strategic Thinking

• Leadership

• Planning and Evaluation

• Decision Making

• Team Building

• Time Management

A novel aspect of the simulation is that it will include students from Stanford, the Naval Postgraduate School, and CSUMB.
