Scientists of the North-West institute of Management of RANEPA will present the results of a research devoted to the game modeling of the political space at the Nevsky Forum. According to experts, the goal of the project is to identify game approaches in widely cited international journals.

During the research the experts have analyzed search engines for scientific publications, in particular Microsoft Academic databases. As a result, scientists have discovered nontrivial methods of using game simulation in real political space.

According to the Doctor of Political Sciences, Head of the Department of Social Technologies of NWIM RANEPA Inna Vetrenko, game simulation is primarily applied in the study of international conflicts and is now experiencing a new stage of development.

«It is believed that this technology helps to find optimal solutions in political crises. But in the foreign literature, we have found approaches where such a technique contributed to the identification of ways of cooperation and interaction of elites, » the political scientist explained.

Vetrenko added that in the future she plans to present to the scientific community a fundamental set of methodological principles used in well-known international publications. «Undoubtedly, the obtained results could give a good impetus to the implementation of game modeling as a scientific method in russian political practices analyzing», the expert said.
