PeaceNexus is leading a consortium of peacebuilding organisations and the game development company RANJ to develop a computer game that simulates the challenges of peacebuilding for training purposes. The game will combine mechanics with effective, skills-based pedagogy to increase trainee comprehension and retention, and increase problem-solving skills in critical areas of peacebuilding including conflict analysis, local ownership, multi-stakeholder process management, and ‘do no harm.’
