Report on the ISA 2020 Online Crisis Simulation (CIR, Slovenia)

On 12 March 2020, International Relations students from the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ljubljana participated in the ISA 2020 online crisis simulation entitled ‘No Place is Safe: Terrorism in the Age of Extremism’.

The simulation had been planed as an online (Facebook supported) event already before the global Coronavirus spread. Due to health-related limitations, the teams mostly worked in remote team mode. Under the pedagogic mentorship of Associate Professor Dr. Ana Bojinović Fenko and Teaching Assistants Dr. Jure Požgan and Faris Kočan (all from the Centre of International Relations at FSS UL, Slovenia) 12 students from four different countries took the role of Iraq and Gulf Cooperation Council in missile barrage and oil spill disaster in Baghdad in the context of global spread of Corona virus. Other actors of the simulation were the US, EU, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Israel.
