Bargaining and decision making on the UN Security Council

This event simulates (in simplified form), the decision making process of the UN Security Council. Specifically Article 27, the process of bargaining and negotiation. You will represent permanent members of the UN Security Council (either individually or in groups). You'll then be presented by a range of global policy dilemmas. Each country will have different interests and you will want to pursue/promote the interests of the country you have been assigned. Over the course of six issues you will discuss, bargain, bribe and vote to try to facilitate produce decisions that satisfy your national interests.

What you need to check before attending the event:

  • Are you studying Psychology with Sociology and/or a Criminology module as part of BA Health and Social Care course? If so, you will need to check your module learning rooms to see if your lectures are still taking place.
  • Are you studying on the BA (Hons) Criminology; BA (Hons) Social Work, BSc (Hons) Psychology; BSc (Hons) Psychology with Sociology; or BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology? You will still have scheduled teaching, seminars or you will be on placement. You are very welcome to attend our ACE Week events that do not clash with your scheduled teaching.
