Simulations and games are used for training and education in many professions, especially the military. The novel idea is to produce videogames for peacekeeping specifically. Furthermore, there is a multi-billion-dollar industry with video games for war-fighting and first-person shooting. But the industry lacks games that demonstrate the principles of peacekeeping, peaceful resolution of conflict, and the means to actively prevent mass atrocities. These games could be used to raise public awareness about UN work and goals. Peacekeeping games and simulations will show the ethical and practical dilemmas in UN peace operations, based on the principles of UN peacekeeping and real-life scenarios. In this initiative, simulations will be developed for training peacekeepers. And games will be developed for public education.
