The United States Diplomacy Center offers education programs designed to explain the world of diplomacy. A primary component of the programs is a series of Diplomacy Simulations — hands-on exercises that enable students and teachers to directly experience the work of diplomats dealing with complex issues in critical foreign affairs topics.
The Office of American Spaces has developed a programming kit tailored to assisting American Spaces in facilitating the simulation exercises described below. This kit can be used in conjunction with the teacher’s guide found on the U.S. Diplomacy Center website. The Diplomacy Simulation topics include the following:
