Six-Party Talks Simulation at Georgia State
Monday, September 19, 2011 – Grace O, Professor of Economics at Georgia State's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, invited KEI's Nicholas Hamisevicz, Director of Research and Academic Affairs, to facilitate KEI's own Six-Party Talks simulation for 41 of the University's students.
KEI’s Six-Party Talks simulation turns students into lead negotiators for one of the six countries involved in the North Korea nuclear negotiations (i.e., United States, Russia, South Korea, North Korea, China, and Japan). As government representatives, students are tasked to reach a comprehensive agreement for North Korea's denuclearization. With private information, resources, and their own wit, negotiators are out to win the best outcome for their respective governments. Participants learn about the issues involved in the Six Party Talks, nuclear diplomacy, and the difficulties of international negotiation, while having a great time through experiential learning.
KEI's Six-Party Talks simulation has now been completed by 2,835 students from various schools around the United States.
