Crisis Simulation: East China Sea 2019

Join CSPS for the Spring 2019 Crisis Simulation. At this event participants will assume the role of a senior executive, diplomat or military professional within an assigned country: the United States, China, or Japan. The teams must work together – or against each other – to respond to a simulated crisis in the hotly contested East China Sea. Facilitated by professionals from the U.S. Intelligence Community and the military, participants will respond to unfolding events and challenges involving freedom of navigation, area denial, and competing territorial waters claims. Designed to replicate the intensity and challenges faced by senior officials in similar situations, this crisis scenario offers an opportunity to test your ideas and assumptions as you strive to meet your strategic and tactical objectives! Registration is required.

DATE/TIME: MARCH 2, 2019 9am – 4pm

PLACE: GMU’s Arlington Campus


This event is restricted to George Mason University Students. Only degree-seeking graduate students may sign up online. A limited number of undergraduate students may participate; please contact for details. Because this event is only open to Mason students, participants will need to sign up with their Mason email.

CSPS conducts a crisis simulation each semester. Last semester participants engaged in the Kaliningrad simulation. A write up on that event can be found here.
