Students from Years 9-12 compete in teams of two to represent a particular country in an mock international negotiation. Teams can be formed by students from differing schools as long as they are Tasmanian!
In these teams students will need to act towards the achievement of their country’s strategic interests and objectives by proposing and debating solutions to a crisis! The aim is to find mutually beneficial resolutions to disagreements based in real-world situations. Teams, with limited knowledge of other teams positions, are issued instructions from their respective governments that detail the both the wanted outcome and those that should be avoided at all costs!
The most effective diplomats and negotiators will be announced the winners of the competition by the end of the day!
