About the Simulation
The simulation will consist of three rounds played between September 21st and September 26th. In the simulation, four teams will represent four actors: Team Russia, Team Russia - Cyber, Team EU, and Team NATO.
The participants will be asked to respond to a different scenario of actions taken by Russia, the EU, and NATO in each round. They will be asked to suggest different policies and actions for their team as a response. Eventually, all the participants will assess the probabilities and risks of the different types of actions and reactions that were taken during the simulation.
