A Training Tool for Activists and Students

The Global Justice Game is intended as a tool for the global justice movement to use in training activists and for critical pedagogy in teaching undergraduate courses on globalization issues. The full game consists of seven cases, each based on a different scenario. The players are part of teams some of which are based on organizations in the real world – for example, the World Trade Organization or the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Others are invented teams, meant to simulate similar players in the real world – for example, the government of Fabrikistan or the company, Chic Duds International (CDI).
