simulations.

Justification
The content of this course was previously offered as one-weekend of CM 7305, a
two-credit clinic course. We are replacing the one 2-credit course with a series of
three one-credit courses, which should allow for more student choice in the
curriculum, student transcripts to better reflect the content covered in the
curriculum, and the potential for offering embedded certificates in the program
focused in particular areas of conflict management (international,
workplace/organizational, and courts/justice).

CATALOG DESCRIPTION:
This is a two-day training course designed to explore a range of dilemmas and scenarios in
humanitarian, peacebuilding, conflict and human rights crises. The course is built around using
simulations.
COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
 Describe and analyze national, international and historical perspectives on conflict
intervention practice in the context of humanitarian principles and practice;
 Apply the main analytical frameworks for addressing the protection of life, livelihoods, and
the rights and safety of people caught in complex and violent emergencies;
 Apply and demonstrate crisis negotiation principles.
 Apply interview skills for visiting detainees and others deprived of their freedom
TEACHING STRATEGIES:
CM 7365 uses the “Atlantic Hope" simulation, which is a continuous two day-long field training
exercise that simulates a complex humanitarian emergency for university graduate students in
conflict studies. Exercise participants work in a fictional country, dubbed “Atlantica”, that has
suffered a large internal uprising, ethnic and regional conflict and post conflict hostilities and
violence. The exercises are structured around a series of scripted major and minor events that
present a variety of real humanitarian and peace-building dilemmas. Situational details are
provided in a comprehensive political, social, economic, and geographic guide for the
participants. The guide also provides reference information on the positions of several different
Atlantican factions, U.S. government agencies present in Atlantica, international organizations,
community members, military units, local intermediaries, and other fictional NGOs. Over three
days in the field, participants have to problem-solve in the field and work around the clock to
help alleviate a humanitarian crisis and lay the foundations for a lasting peace in the war-torn
country.
Grading:
This is a pass/fail course. As there is no written work associated with this skills clinic. to pass the
course students must attend the simulation and be fully engaged in the role plays, group debriefs,
and other activities for the length of the simulation. To receive credit students must be on-time
all activities and engage in active listening and discussion of the presented material.
To determine final grades, students will be evaluated on the following:
