QICSIM 2012:

In 2012, QICSIM focused on a whole-of-government approach to Arctic Sovereignty. Delegates were assigned to different delegations, representative of various facets of the Canadian government and key states in the implications of Arctic sovereignty. Key guests and speakers included Lieutenant Colonel Sven Hilgefort, Professor Charles Pentland, and Ambassador John Schram.

QICSIM 2011: Implications of the Sudanese Referendum

This year we were privileged to work on the Sudanese referendum.  By letting our delegates experience firsthand the intricacies of the issues involved in the country, Africa, and the world they gained a better understanding of this rich geopolitical area and how leaders today deal with conflict management.  This year we featured experts from a variety of backgrounds to speak to the delegates regarding issues of ethnic violence, global politics, conflict management, and the economic forces that drive military conflict. QICSim also had the honour of working with the Royal Military College, the Canadian Forces, and the Department of National Defence. The simulation’s results were presented to the Canadian Government and used as research in preparation for our country’s response to the ongoing conflict.

Delegates from Queen’s University and the Royal Military College spent the conference with:

  • H.E. Elsadig Almagly, Sudanese Ambassador to Canada
  • H.E. George Marino Abola, Ugandan High Commissioner to Canada
  • Senator Romeo Dallaire
  • H.E. John Schram, Former Canadian Ambassador
