Metagame Analysis of the Poplar River Conflict

Abstract

The technique of metagame analysis enables the assessment of the political feasibility of engineering projects. The building of a large power plant in Saskatchewan, Canada, has resulted in a conflict between Canadian and U.S. interests over the apportionment of water in the Poplar River, which flows across the international border from Saskatchewan into the American State of Montana. Metagame analysis is used to determine political resolutions to the Poplar conflict based on the published preferences of the interested parties. It is shown that metagame analysis conveniently organizes information and provides insight into conflict resolution.
