The purpose of the present research is to identify, analyze and simulate dynamics of interaction and conflicts among agents using drama theory, and to apply it in Citarum river basin problem. To accomplish the purpose, we first model the process in terms of drama theory that is combined with emotional state model (PAD). One of the reasons why we adopt drama theory is that it primarily focuses on dilemma or paradox arising from rational goal seeking behavior. It also provides us with rigorous analytical and computational tools of conflict analysis.Then, we propose a simulation model to describe both of dilemma of conflict, i.e., persuasion and rejection dilemma among the agents, and the dilemma of collaboration (trust dilemma) among the agents. Finally, we conduct agent-based simulation by using SOARS (Spot Oriented Agent Role Simulator) to obtain some fruitful suggestions for encouraging their collaboration.
