A Game… For Learning

Started by the teaching teams of Sciences Po Aix and of the Aix-Marseille Université (AMU) Faculty of Law and Political Science, the serious game Bs’W-Sim is supported by A*Midex’s Académie d’Excellence and by AMU’s Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence.

This international negotiation serious game offers Master’s students an immersive experience in European discision-making. In order to remain true to reality, the simulation reproduces the strategic interdepencies and strategies that link intstitutional actors, highlighting current national and political power dynamics. The simulation also seeks to understand the pressure placed upon decision-makers, by the media, civil society, and public opinion. In essence, it seeks to recreate the multi-arena context which negotiators, whether they be institutional representatives or stakeholders, make up.
