Call for Applications: Security Council Simulation at Yale


Applications are invited to the thirty-ninth annual session of the Security Council Simulation at Yale (SCSY) to be held from October 13 to October 16, 2016. Over 400 undergraduate and graduate students from around the world will gather at Yale University to put themselves in the shoes of policymakers and address the world’s most challenging and unpredictable crises. The Security Council Simulation at Yale, in its 39th iteration, will convene over 15 committees to address crises related to topics ranging from the EU migration crisis and Latin American narco-terrorism to deadly climate change and future presidential campaigns.

The Security Council Simulation is part of the Yale International Relations Association, Yale’s largest student organization with working connections with the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and the MacMillan Center for International Studies. The crises simulations are open to all majors and will help build problem-solving, negotiation, policy writing and critical thinking skills, and enrich participants’ knowledge about global affairs, economics and scientific questions.

Eligibility: All undergraduate and graduate students around the world.
