Participants Needed for Korean Peninsula Policy Planning Simulation
Shattered Resolve: A Simulation of Conflict and Cooperation on the Korean Peninsula
The Korean Peninsula remains an active source of regionally destabilizing tensions with enormous potential for devastation. "Shattered Resolve" will look at the United State's relations with the full variety of regional actors involved, such as North Korea, South Korea, Japan, Russia and China. Participants will grapple with serious questions of U.S. national interest, develop policies to pursue the decided upon objectives and attempt to determine optimal responses to a variety of crisis situations. Other participants may find themselves planning, and potentially executing, complex military operations and managing relations with a variety of different military and civilian colleagues.
Participants will represent policy actors and practitioners from the U.S. government, including the Departments of Defense and State, the White House and the Intelligence Community, and key officers and staff members from U.S. Korea, U.S. Special Operations Command and U.S. Pacific Command.
"Shattered Resolve" will run on Saturday, April 20th from 11am - 6pm in Duques Hall. A pizza lunch will be provided to all participants, free of charge.
