Summary

"Ukraine In Conflict" is a multiparty negotiation that acts as a skill-building exercise. In this simulation Ukraine, the European Union, Russia, and Ukraine Separatists are brought together by the United States, acting as mediator, to resolve the warring conflict in eastern Ukraine. Issues to be discussed are land, trade-pacts, and a plane crash investigation. Participants in the negotiation will garner skill in collaboration, crisis negotiation, off-table discussions, and negotiation without information. The purpose of the simulation is to bring a real-world conflict in a realistic situation to allow creative solutions as well as development of skills in crisis negotiation.
