International Strategic Crisis and Negotiation ExerciseOn April 5, 2021 by Schnader
EVENT DATE: March 25 to 27, 2021
Denny Shupe served as a Mentor for Team Malaysia in a unique, two-day international strategic crisis and negotiation exercise, sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School in partnership with the U.S. Army War College’s Center for Strategic Leadership. The exercise took place from March 25 to 27, 2021.
Students taking part in the exercise were tasked to resolve a challenging international dispute with diplomatic, informational, military, legal, and economic factors at play. During the simulation, students navigated the international legal and strategic aspects of the crisis while engaging in intense negotiations, working in teams as well as with counterparts with divergent interests, and participating in conflict de-escalation and resolution. The volunteer mentors for this year’s exercise included former foreign service officers, retired and former military officers, law firm partners and associates, and academics.
