George Washington University Strategic Crisis Simulations is hosting our next simulation on October 25th, 2014. Contested Crescent: A Simulation of Political Tension and Regional Influence in Iraq will look at the steps that policymakers must take to facilitate continued progress in the region, and to ensure that the current crisis does not result in a catastrophic backslide. Participants will work with all the regional actors, both state and non-state, to develop a comprehensive and multilateral government response to issues as disparate as internally displaced persons, terrorism, insurgency, government reform and elections, and traditional interstate conflict. They will grapple with serious questions of U.S. national interest, develop policies to pursue based upon their decided objectives, and attempt to determine optimal responses to a variety of crisis situations. Other participants may find themselves planning, and potentially executing, complex military operations or humanitarian assistance and development programs.
