One of INGSA’s core activities is to assist with the development or strengthening of advisory systems through capacity-building workshops.

We often tend to use a case-based learning approach in our workshops. These are a mix of actual historic cases and fictional cases.

All of these case-studies are available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International licence. We encourage everyone to use and adapt these resources as necessary.

We are continually building our case study library and welcome your ideas and support in developing new cases. Please send your submissions to info@ingsa.org

 

Fictional Cases

All of these cases cut across a range of major issues such as technology, health and diplomacy. We have tried to group these according to their primary theme, but be aware that appropriate cases for your need might be listed under other themes.
