Summary

The simulation game "Conflict", stressing decision making in foreign policy, has several specific objectives which are: 1) to demonstrate the complexity of decision making in foreign policy; 2) to raise questions on foreign relations; 3) to make students aware of problems in world affairs; 4) to help students understand relationships that exist between nations; and, 5) to gain insight into the difficulty of putting theory into actual practice. Conflict in the Middle East is a brief narrative history of this area from 1971 to 1969 designed to be read by secondary students approximately one week before participating in the game "Conflict" which can be played in three or four class periods of about one hour each. The Teacher's Manual, a guide to the international relations game, is arranged in three major parts. Part I, "Foreign Policy and the International System", defines and explains the objectives of foreign policy. Determinants, themes, instruments, and decision making patterns are listed as key components upon which to conduct the game. Part II presents an organized framework within which the Middle East conflict has developed and may be experienced in game format. Specific suggestions, for activities and their schedules are presented. Part III contains supplemental materials; summary statements, news releases, and sample forms are included for reproduction by the teacher. (SJM)
