Celtic Rift

Join us for our annual collaboration with the Elliott School's Leadership, Ethics, and Practice (LEAP) Initiative as we explore the future of the island of Ireland. For this simulation, we will explore the political ramifications of the Good Friday Agreement, and the status of the peace in Northern Ireland.

Following a hotly contested UK general election in 2024, Irish Republicans in Northern Ireland have made the decision to officially push for Irish Unification. What follows is a contentious process of referendums and border polls, prompting responses from local political parties and national actors. Participants will navigate a shaky democratic process while attempting to establish a lasting peace in Northern Ireland.

Celtic Rift will take place on Saturday, April 10th, 2021, from 11:30 AM EST to 4:30 PM EST. This simulation will be held over Discord, a free communications platform ideal for handling large numbers of people in flexible team-aligned channels.

If you are interested in being a mentor for this simulation, please contact Shivanka Ruhela, Director of Simulations,
