Description of the tool

These Simulation Games is the result of the conference "Simulation Games for Teaching Human Rights and Active Citizenship in Post-Soviet Moldova", in Repblic of Moldova, in March 2012, involving 24 participants from different countries.

This simulation addresses a fictitious frozen conflict between Anceps and Tavus, based upon issues common to the post-Soviet space. The setting is a roundtable negotiation between all stakeholders organized due to rapid and unexpected developments that have drawn international attention. All stakeholders have stated that resolution is their goal, but their actual interests vary.

By the end of the simulation exercise, participants will:
* Acquire knowledge about historical themes of post-Soviet frozen conflicts;
* Explore dynamics of territorial disputes and conflict resolution;
* Develop empathy, critical thinking, and negotiation skills.
These are the basic learning objectives for which this simulation is designed. A variety of additional objectives can be added without altering the content of the simulation in order to suit the educational needs of the context.
