Simulations and Gaming to Build Peace

for a special issue of

Simulation & Gaming: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Theory, Practice and Research

Simulation has often been used for training and planning armed conflict. However, it can also be used to address and illuminate transitions from conflict to domestic and international peace.

This symposium (special issue) of Simulation & Gaming: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Theory, Practice and Research will examine the various ways in which simulation and serious games can be used to enrich instructional curricula, train practitioners, promote conflict resolution, and generate theoretical and practical insight into processes of war-to-peace transition. We invite submissions from multiple disciplines, perspectives, and methodological or pedagogical approaches. Theoretical reflections, rigorous and critical evaluation of simulation exercises, literature reviews, and conceptual contributions are all welcomed. The topics that might be addressed could include preventive diplomacy; crisis management and de-escalation; conflict resolution; peace negotiations; counterinsurgency, stabilization, humanitarian intervention and peace operations; refugees; ethnic conflict; humanitarian operations; aid, budgetary planning, and post-conflict reconstruction; conflict-sensitive planning; interagency, civil-military, and coalition cooperation; human rights and election monitoring; media coverage, awareness and advocacy—among others.

Interested authors are invited to submit by an abstract (not exceeding 500 words) of their proposed work for initial review, together with a brief CV on or before March 30, 2011. Accepted proposals will then be asked to submit a full paper by July 31.

For further information, or to submit a proposal, please contact Rex Brynen at rex.brynen@mcgill.ca.
