Management during the energy crisis – a simulation of the Pulaski Foundation as a part of a project sponsored by the International Visegrad Fund

On 16th and 17th of January 2019 the Casimir Pulaski Foundation organised a simulation entitled “Energy Crisis Management Simulation”, focusing on the state level energy crisis management. 15 participants (from Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, and Ukraine) took part in the simulation which is being carried out as part of the project organised in cooperation with the International Visegrad Fund.

Participants were divided into five teams representing individual countries. Each country had its own goals and national interests that had to be realised. Interests of different states were not known to other participants. The main goal of the simulation was to reach an agreement despite the energy crisis that would be acceptable to all parties.

Before starting the simulation, the participants presented the results of their own analyses concerning energy policy, as well as the methods of its creation and implementation by relevant entities in their countries. They also pointed to challenges and recommendations of selected institutions involved in the development of energy policy.

The roundtable is a part of the “Energy security and effective strategic communication of civil and governmental actors: V4+Ukraine” project, carried out in cooperation with the International Visegrad Fund and partner organizations from V4 states and Ukraine: Research Center of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association from Slovakia, Centre for Global Studies “Strategy XXI” from Ukraine, KNO Česko, spol. s r.o. from Czech Republic, and Center for Fair Political Analysis from Hungary.

Visegrad Grants Program of the International Visegrad Fund financially supports projects that develop cooperation between countries belonging to the Visegrad Group and Ukraine.

The Fund aims to support the cooperation of countries forming the Visegrad Group (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia), with emphasis on four aspects, such as innovation, regional dimension, youth and sustainable development.
