Simulation Games on Human Rights Dilemmas

Simulation games are an innovative educational tool linking human rights education with political and history education. Simulating human rights dilemmas provides a playful way of learning and understanding the complex political dynamics behind them. Participants assume the roles of different interest groups, explore driving forces and historical backgrounds of a conflict, and strive for an acceptable compromise in negotiations. A simulation is an abstraction which inevitably involves simplification. The focus lies on exposing mechanisms of political decision making.

Complete simulation manuals with role cards and guidelines for facilitators are available for use.
