Throughout the course, teams of students are supposed to negotiate resolution of one of the current events. This year, the topic is Brexit. During the negotiations, it showed up that the most problematic issue is the future arrangement of the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland. It seems it might remain open if and only if the U.K. remains in the Single Market or in the customs union with the EU, however the UK strongly prefers "ambitious free trade agreement". Keeping the border open is, on the other hand, one of the key foundations of the Good Friday Agreement that ended the violence in Northern Ireland in 1999. Consequently a failure to negotiate an agreement can endanger the peace process there. At the same time, an agreement on Irish border might push other open issues in Brexit negotiations forward as well.

The purpose of the simulation game is (i) to understand the obstacles of negotiations of political and economic agreements and (ii) to learn negotiation techniques (iii) to discuss international trade agreements and (iv) to evaluate costs and benefits of the EU membership. Additionally, students will get insight in forecasting of the effects of large events (like the Brexit).

The course is divided into three parts. Firstly, we start with four lectures introducing the topic, to provide the key information to all participants. The game itself follows. The course is concluded by a follow-up and short essay.

The detailed description of the game is provided in the syllabus. All materials are posted in moodle (course name JEM180 Philosophy, Economics and Politics II: Current Debates).
