Ground|Work Partner(s): Marc Levy
Center for International Earth Science Information Network

Access: Private
Released: October 2009


Ground|Work is an online simulation in which users grapple with maintaining the fragile peace in a post-conflict country (Nimpala). Over the course of seven weeks students in Professor Marc Levy's Environment, Conflict, and Resolution Strategy course use their knowledge of previous conflicts and conflict resolution strategies to complete both individual and team activities. These activities include drafting a conflict assessment, funding interventions, preventing or responding to humanitarian crises, and working with donors. When the simulation concludes, teams will find that Nimpala is in one of three states/conditions: peace, humanitarian crisis, or resurgence of conflict.
