Strategic Economic Needs and Security Exercise

January 11, 2011
One of the Institute’s core missions is strengthening capabilities of decision makers around the world to manage post-conflict transitions successfully.  The Strategic Economic Needs and Security Exercise (SENSE), originally developed by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), is a computer-facilitated simulation that focuses on negotiations and decision-making in a post-conflict environment.

SENSE simulates the resource allocation challenges confronting national and international decision-makers.  Its sophisticated computer support provides participants with rapid feedback on the results of their time-sensitive decision-making in terms of political stability, social justice, and a foundation for economic progress.  But the primary activity in SENSE is negotiation between and among those participating in the simulation.

USIP, in partnership with George Mason University (GMU) and the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), will conduct the Strategic Economic Needs and Security Exercise (SENSE) simulation. The primary target audience is the USG interagency community, but other interested parties are welcome.
Participation is free, but space will be limited. Lunch/snacks will be provided; participants must commit to the full three-day simulation.
