Over the past weekend the Patterson School hosted the Army War College Negotiation Simulation, enabling students to play parts from several different nations involved in long-running disputes along the borders of Sudan and South Sudan. The Army War College provided the grist for the simulation, including extensive documentation of the conflict and a timeline that projected into the near future. Patterson students studied this material, then played roles associated with diplomatic teams from each of seven concerned countries. Hosting the simulation has been a tradition at the Patterson School for almost a decade. Of course, the demands of the pandemic changed the character of the simulation, with social distancing policies applying inside and outside of team rooms, and some activities taking place entirely on Zoom. The Patterson School looks forward to continuing its partnership with the Army War College in the future, and is always supportive of projects that give students hands-on, practical diplomatic experience.
