Educating Future National Security Professionals
at Syracuse University
In partnership with Syracuse University, the United
States Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership (CSL) will conduct the
International Strategic Crisis Negotiation Exercise (ISCNE) at the Maxwell
School of Syracuse University on 14 and 15 May, 2012. The exercise is a Capstone
simulation for the Maxwell School?s Master of Arts in International Relations
(MAIR) students. The ISCNE is an international-level crisis negotiation exercise
designed to provide participants with an opportunity to role-play
strategic-level negotiators in order to gain experience in international
diplomacy, negotiation techniques, strategic and national-level decision making.
It is a scenario-driven exercise set ten years into the future, and places
participants into an intense, time constrained set of negotiations dealing with
a near real-world crisis. The scenario confronts the current real-world
stalemate between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the disputed region of
Nagorno-Karabakh. Participants are divided into seven negotiation teams, each
representing a different party to the negotiations - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran,
Nagorno-Karabakh, Russia, Turkey and the United States. The negotiation teams
have gathered at The Hague in Belgium to attempt to begin the journey toward a
peaceful resolution of this historic problem. The ISCNE provides CSL and the
U.S. Army War College the opportunity to forge partnerships, exchange ideas and
share expertise with other top-tier institutions dedicated to educating
strategic thinkers and leaders.
