ALLIES Annual CMRC Simulation by Matt Stinson A'25 Apr 19

In November 2021, ALLIES hosted their 8th annual Civil-Military Relations Conference (CMRC). As part of the conference, attendees participated in a simulation-based on this year's theme: Nation-Building and Peacekeeping in the 21st century. The CMRC planning team entirely crafted the simulation under the direction of CMRC directors Jackson Lubke (A'23) and Clara Etchegaray (A'22). This year's scenario was focused on statecraft, and participants had the opportunity to tackle the complicated process of managing the geopolitical consequences of a partitioned country and unequal power dynamics.

Students were separated into four primary groups: the two conflicting countries, a third stable regime, and a large corporation that meddled in political affairs. Additionally, each student was given their own individual role in the scenario with different and often conflicting motivations and objections.
