REEES Crisis Simulation in Moscow:
Instability in Afghanistan and Central Asia
Moscow State Institute of International Relations, Moscow, Russia
October 26 - November 2, 2019
Michael Reynolds, associate professor of Near Eastern studies and director of the Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies
Central Asia sits at the intersection of some of the world's greatest powers. As the United States lightens its footprint in Afghanistan, instability related to its withdrawal could spill over into the surrounding region – sparking reactions from China, India, Pakistan, Russia and the United States.
This simulation, taking place at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), will allow participates to put themselves in the shoes of these powers and respond to developing crises and strategic challenges while getting to know students from a Russian university.
In addition to participating in the simulation, students will visit the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, listen to lectures and briefs from MGIMO faculty, and tour Moscow, visiting Red Square, the Kremlin, and taking a cruise on the Moscow River among other activities.
Course Fee: $500 (includes housing, airfare, excursions, visas and meals).
Financial Aid: Accepted students who receive term financial aid automatically receive funding toward the field trip based on the level of term aid. Possibilities for additional financial support may be available through the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE). Princeton subsidized Student Loans, available from the Office of Financial Aid, are also highly recommended. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
No previous simulation, Russian proficiency, or regional experience required, and all years and programs are welcome. We will notify participants of their acceptance by Friday, August 16.
