BETA (Bringing Europeans Together Association) España, with the help of the Provincial Council of Granada, is organizing its third edition of the ‘Model European Union’ to be held in Granada this coming October and they are currently recruiting participants from universities around the world, including the University of Malta.
The ‘Model European Union’ shows European students how decisions and legislations are made and carried out in the EU headquarters through a simulation-based event. While most European politics simulations are only based on one of the main institutions of the EU, the ‘Model European Union’ simulation project will primarily focus on interactions between the three main institutions, namely the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament and the European Commission.
The organisers will play the role of the European Commission, the executive body of the European Union. Students have the chance to apply as a minister of the council, a member of the European Parliament (MEP) or a journalist. The latter will be assigned to the role of editor, photographer, videographer, graphic designer, or social network professional. Over a period of five days, participants will discuss and amend proposals or, in the case of journalists, report on the goings-on.
Although the conference will be held in Spain, its official language will be English.
