Using global simulation to study ethnic conflict
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-26, 11:32 authored by William BostockWilliam Bostock
Modern political science is dominated by quantitative methods and rational choice theory. However, ethnic conflict situations are often irrational, unquantifiable, highly unstable and unpredictable. Field investigations are likely to be out of the question for practical reasons. In this paper it is argued that the global simulation teaching method, introduced in France for language learning, has a valid application in political science.
