Simulation: Bargaining and decision-making on the UN Security Council

Are you interested in learning more about foreign policy decision making?

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 will be presented by a range of global policy dilemmas. Each country will have different interests they will want to pursue or promote. Over the course of six issues you will discuss, bargain, bribe and vote to try to facilitate decisions that satisfy their national interests.

What you need to check before attending the event:

Are you studying on BA (Hons) Social Work or postgraduate course? You will still have scheduled teaching, seminars or will be on placement. You are very welcome to attend our ACE Week events that do not clash with your scheduled teaching.
