Model European Union Strasbourg 2016
Model European Union Strasbourg is a simulation of the EU’s decision-making process that takes place each year in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. For one week, 180 carefully selected participants take on the roles of Members of the European Parliament, Ministers of the Council, Interpreters, Journalists and Lobbyists, and work to amend real proposals made by the European Commission. During the conference, participants will not only have the opportunity to improve their debating and decision-making skills, but they will also gain experience in the political world and network with other like-minded Europeans. The project is thus completely original in the world of simulations and is extremely popular among young Europeans from diverse study and geographical backgrounds. MEU Strasbourg 2016 will be the 10th edition of the conference and will take place from the 2nd – 9th of April in the Parliament buildings in Strasbourg. This year, we will be focusing our discussions on renewable energy and the ongoing asylum crisis. Each topic will be discussed with reference to two topical commission proposals.
