Research project "UNchanged" publishes first results

Even before the corona pandemic, Niall Juval Janssen and Max Liedtke - two international relations students - led by Dr. Jan Niklas Rolf carried out two simulations of the United Nations Security Council in the laboratories of the Faculty of Society and Economics. The existing and a reformed Security Council were simulated over several days and the decisions made were then compared with one another. The surprising results have now been published as a discussion paper in the Discussion Papers in Behavioral Sciences and Economics series. A further article, which projects the voting behavior of the member countries in the General Assembly onto the existing and reformed Security Council, will appear soon in the journal Global Policy. The project team would like to thank all project participants as well as the faculty and the student council for their support.
