This session aims to explore and test new forms of creating controversies and intellectual debate outside established academic formats. Departing from the usual presentation of papers, the session proposes a discussion organized around a political fiction in which the executive committee of an unnamed country is summoned to solve an impending crisis. The fiction will be enacted by the members of the executive committee (represented by the organizers of this session); the audience (who will play an active role as the staff of the executive committee); and a series of guest experts (who will be called in to provide guidance to the executive committee and its staff).
