DT Wins FSI Atrocity Prevention Simulation Exercise

October 9th, 2018

DT has been contracted by the U.S. State Department Foreign Service Institute (FSI) to design an atrocity prevention simulation exercise for use at FSI and U.S. Embassies abroad. This simulation will provide participants from the George P. Shultz National Foreign Affairs Training Center and U.S. Embassies with a dynamic opportunity to practice recognizing risk factors, patterns of escalation, and warning signs of a potential atrocity or civilian harm and taking appropriate action to prevent escalation, limit harm, and respond to atrocities in coordination with the interagency. DT’s atrocity prevention experts, Doug Irvin-Erickson and Julia Fromholz, bring a wealth of experience to this endeavor. DT is glad for the opportunity to apply our years of exercise design expertise, simulation design and implementation, and institutional lessons learned from implementing stabilization programs in active conflict zones to furthering education within FSI and for Foreign Service officers around the world.
