Diplomatic Simulation Program: Part 5 Informal Negotiations

The value of the informal is just that
where they can sort of loosen up have a more casual conversation with their
counterparts, and for them to feel the difference between that. By bringing that
in, if you guys are cooperate it’ll bring greater economic and political stability in the region. And if you guys can do that we will provide you know all
intelligence necessary, security forces, I mean we would love to be able to do that. It’s not always is very straightforward as you might expect like on paper. You can write
out a solution and find out that you know a different party is holding things
back and not talking to you as much as you maybe thought they were. But Beyaria is also telling Ekara, and Ekara took that to the debate, so how is that going to work? Talking with one group about
one thing, then going to the other group and like trying to work a deal out. It’s challenging, but it’s also, it makes you think harder. And it makes you
get creative. We want to stop the entrance for two months and see whether
that affects our HIV percentage, okay? Wouldn’t the same be achieved if you put on
medical checks on the border? As students experience the formal versus the
informal they begin to realize that they have more leverage in an informal where
they can make promises, and they can build alliances. There’s a more familiar
setting with that, and that at the formal setting that information doesn’t
always come out. So they begin to understand that there are subtleties
involved in this process of diplomacy. For me personally informal I try to
listen a lot more. I could definitely focus more on just listening to what
other people were saying, and figure out how that brings me to the table, and how
I fit into their their desires. We need, before we back you guys, we need you to make child labor against the rules for any country that is in TRIPS. It has a lot of value in getting kids to
think about trade-offs, and to getting them to thinking about like what can I
offer? And what can I gain? And you know it’s sort of those soft skills of
interacting with their peers. They also realize that in the informal where
certain information is shared at the formal table maybe that information
doesn’t come out and that can be at their advantage.
