The rise of the so-called “Islamic State” in Iraq and Syria poses new challenges for mass atrocity prevention and response.

To explore how the conflict might evolve in the near and medium term, MIGS and PAXsims will convene a short analytical crisis game. The game will be facilitated by Rex Brynen (McGill University), a specialist in both conflict simulation and contemporary Middle East conflict.

Space is limited. Register today!
