Introduction to International Relations

Enduring Questions and Contemporary Perspectives

by Joseph Grieco, G. John Ikenberry and Michael Mastanduno


These text-based adventure games explore complex situations in International Relations by inviting you to go through the decision-making process of a world leader at a crucial political junction. Some of these scenarios are based on genuine historical events; others are possible dilemmas that could arise.

At the start of each Simulation, you will find yourself in a particular complex position. When you decide how to handle that difficulty, you will find yourself in new circumstances resulting from your decision. Decide carefully; a lot could be resting on your shoulders!

These simulations work best in Google chrome, which you can download here.
