International Crisis Game
This weekend I helped supervise an International Crisis Game here at AUCA. It was a simulation of a future Israeli assault upon Gaza and involved students from universities here in Bishkek, Osh State and KIMEP in Almaty, Kazakhstan. I was the supervisor for the teams representing Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It was fun, but exhausting. Saturday's session ran from nine in the morning until six at night. Most importantly, however, I think the students participating learned a lot about how international relations work from the event.
