For 24 hours starting tonight, dozens of students will direct their attention to an imagined future through Simulex, described by its organizer (the International Security Studies Program) as “a major crisis management exercise in which participants assume the roles of national policy makers in an international scenario.” Simulex has taken place on an autumn weekend for years and years, and it’s a major focus for students in Security Studies. This year’s theme is “Chaos in the Middle East: The 2014 Crisis.” Teams exploring the scenario of a succession struggle in Saudi Arabia will represent Saudi Arabia, Iran, Israel, Yemen, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Terrorists, and the United States. It will be an intense but productive weekend.
