SIMULATION GAMES
SURVIVAL AND HOPE

This is a board game about refugees, suitable for middle
and upper primary and lower secondary classes as well as
youth and community groups. Its purpose is to allow players to gain some understanding of what it is like to become a refugee and why people are sometimes forced to leave their homes and their countries. Students play the game on a board, aiming to achieve re-settlement in another country or voluntary repatriation. Some of the hazards of the journeys are explored.

THE GREAT ESCAPE

This game is taken from Amnesty International UK’s human rights education pack ‘Freedom’. It is about a group of refugees escaping to freedom. Participants are confronted by a series of human rights dilemmas that they have to try to resolve by consensus. The aims of this game are: to introduce participants to human rights; to develop knowledge and understanding of democracy, legal and human rights and responsibilities, systems of justice and skills in communication and working with others.
