Georgia, a post-Soviet country long mired in regional conflict, stands at a critical juncture of its development. The fate of Georgia's political, security, and humanitarian situations are still in question after twelve years of unsuccessful talks. However, there is still hope for lasting peace and stability in Georgia. In this exercise, you will take the role of U.S., Russian, Georgian, international, and separatist negotiators and mediators convening in Geneva to determine the future of Georgia once and for all.

"Negotiate the Future of Georgia" will take place online on Saturday, April 11, between 10am and 4:30pm through Zoom. During this event you will be working on a problem set that will allow you to engage with other negotiators through email, videoconferencing, and phone. You will have opportunity to "move" throughout our virtual space and breaks will be provided. The event will include both negotiations and a debrief.
