You are warmly welcome to participate in the pilot of a Peace Games simulation that will take place on July 24, 2023 at the 2nd Floor of the People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy (PSPD) office near Gwanghamun, Seoul from 1-7pm.
GPPAC Northeast Asia members and likeminded friends, about 35 people in total. No previous experience is required! The programme will be held in English language.
GPPAC Northeast Asia and AFSC are collaborating to develop a simulation of Peace Games for the region, and seeking participants to join an initial pilot session!
The Simulation will give participants a chance to practise and hone their understanding of international diplomacy, introducing participants to challenges in Northeast Asia and guiding toward possible solutions. Participants can expect to receive a packet of information in advance with the overall scenario, flow of the day, the particular role assigned to each person, and general information about the context. The pilot session will also include a feedback session where participants will shape the simulation moving forward.
July 24, from 1-7pm (including coffee break!)
2nd Floor PSPD Building, 16, Jahamunro 9-gil, Jongno-Gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea (03036)

Discourse and tabletop exercises in Northeast Asia generally start with a negative event and play out the consequences of such an event. What if this was changed, flipped around, to analyze the opportunities presented by something positive happening? What might be possible with a modest breakthrough and agreement?
Building off of the work of others who have crafted simulations for the Korean Peninsula (USIP, Quincy Institute, Stimson Center, and Sejong Institute in particular), AFSC and the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict Northeast Asia (GPPAC) are seeking to pilot a simulation informed by the particular viewpoints of the civil societies and participants in the network.
Today’s programme will be a first step to developing an ongoing project which can be reproduced and held in different contexts including universities, civil society gatherings and more.
