Event description

Description

Put those books and calculators aside - it’s time to turn theory into practice! At the darkest time of year, Pax et Bellum offers the ultimate opportunity to escape studying and to strengthen your negotiating skills. UPDATE: with 5 spots remaining, we are opening this activity up to peers from other programs at Uppsala - something sure to take this exercise to the next level!

We introduce PAXIUM, a role-playing activity exploring conflict and international humanitarian law developed by the Canadian Red Cross. This 4-hour event concerns the fictitious nation of Paxium and what unfolds as it descends into civil war. UPDATE: In addition to the activity, an International Humanitarian Law expert from the Swedish Defence University will join participants for a Q&A.

PAXIUM was designed to

  • foster awareness of the difficulty of humanitarian decision-making during times of conflict
  • to promote respect for the rights of non-combatants in conflict situations
  • to encourage support for the preservation of human dignity during times of conflict
  • to foster awareness around international events and the challenges involved in both the enforcement of international law and the post-conflict rebuilding process
Simulation exercises are a great tool to improve diplomacy skills, while fostering a deeper understanding of a topic through empathy building and self-reflection.

PAXIUM will be led by facilitators with 15 hours of training on this specific activity. A fika/lunch break will be provided and spots are limited!
