About the Simulation
The simulation consisted of three rounds played between September 21st and September 26th. In the simulation, teams represented 3 actors: Team Russia, Team EU, and Team NATO.
The participants were be asked to respond to a different scenario of actions taken by Russia, the EU, and NATO in each round, and suggested different policies and actions for their team as a response. Eventually, all the participants assessed the probabilities and risks of the different types of actions and reactions that were taken during the simulation.
