Abstract:

The traditional Model United Nations format is one of the most popular and effective active learning techniques to engage students about the complexities of the international system, the evolving system of global governance, the effects of globalization, and the limits of international organizations. Typically, the format necessitates a large number of participants who debate a broad range of political, social, economic, and environmental issues from the perspective of the state level. In a world where UN diplomacy is multifaceted and multilevel, students can benefit from alternative UN based simulations that draw on the Model United Nations format, but move beyond it as well. This paper discusses the use and development of a diplomacy simulation used in an upper level international organization/United Nations course that is loosely modeled on the XV International AIDS Conference held in Bangkok, Thailand in July 2004. It requires students to assume the role of either a UN member state, NGO, MNC, IGO, or UN Agency and to draft a concrete “Plan of Action” to achieve goal #6 of the Millennium Development Goals: Combating HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases. The paper discusses the value of the simulation, including learning objectives and expectations, the preparation of students in advance of the simulation, the simulation as it is conducted both inside and outside of the classroom, post-simulation debriefing, and an assessment of how the simulation can be modified and made more effective.
