Learning objectives and benefits of an organized crime-related simulation

The Model Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Organized Crime Convention has the objective of teaching students about the intergovernmental process related to the Convention while providing them with the opportunity to practice and/or acquire valuable practical skills related to public speaking, debate, diplomacy, negotiation, written communication and critical thinking. In addition, students will have the opportunity to put into practice and deepen their knowledge of transnational organized crime. During the simulation, students will have to use the appropriate rules of procedures of the Conference - or a simplified version thereof - while presenting and defending the policy positions of the countries they are representing.
