Dalyko aprašymas

The course focuses on applying simulation-based learning to analysing politics, economics and public policy, often through the lense of conflict. While scientific theories offer an understanding of political and economic processes, simulations build upon this knowledge by applying it to real (or projected) events. During the course, student groups will select a political and/or economic topic of their choice and develop an interactive analogue simulation game for it. By combining theory, literature analysis and other tools, the course will help understand how simulations can serve as a means for research, education and analysis.

Dalyko tikslas

This course aims at providing the framework for studying political and economic processes through interactive simulation development and use. Students will be provided with tools needed to develop simulation games based on scientific theories and research that can generate additional insights into the area of political economy.
