Abstract

Mass media play important roles in political processes. This article suggests the simulation technique as a supplementary method for the study and teaching of these rotes in academic frameworks. The article reports on experimental uses of a specific simulation of the Middle East Conflict (SMEC) in the study of mass media roles in international conflicts. The results of these experiments, which were held in three different educational systems in Israel, are presented and evaluated. The article also demonstrates how the experience with SMEC can be applied to many other areas and processes in national and international politics.
