Abstract

Serious games can be defined as games that are 'not intended to be played primarily for amusement' (Abt, 1970). In other words, they can be regarded as specific exercises that simulate some aspects of reality and allow participants to experience (at least to a certain extent) some dilemmas that can be faced in complex reality. This experience can become a driver that induces learning outcomes. It can also be studied, and thus become a source of data for research purposes. This seminar seeks to achieve two goals. First, to present the basic idea of a serious game as a methodological tool in social sciences. Second, to hold a discussion that would help collect insights and ideas that can be used in the process of elaboration of the mentioned serious game related to the field of transitional justice.
