This is a student role-play simulation in which teams negotiate to create a new constitution for Gerkhania, a fictional multi-ethnic and multi-religious Central Asian nation-state.
This simulation requires no special equipment or training and can run as a single-session stand-alone negotiation exercise or as a multi-session activity over several weeks. It is ideal for learning about democratic government, political institutions, interest groups, and conflict resolution.
The package includes:
1) Instructor's guide to the simulation in pdf format, containing complete directions.
2) Description of Gerkhania for students, in pdf format, consisting of information about Gerkhania's geography and population and a map.
