About the Model:
The Cambridge University European Society (CUEuS) is organising its first Model European Council from 14 June to 16 June 2013 in one of the colleges of the University of Cambridge.
The conference will simulate the negotiations of the main European institutions for students from the UK and the rest of Europe. It sets out to engage around 70 participants in debating topical issues in European politics. Each participant will represent a European member state and will act on its behalf in the EU decision-making process. As such, the participants will gain skills in research, critical thinking, persuasive speaking and understanding contemporary European affairs. The topics covered by the negotiations will be 1) the budget negotiations (Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020) 2) the Greek rescue package (Eurogroup meeting) and 3) the common approach to youth unemployment in Europe.
Interested candidates are invited to fill out the application form on our website. You will be asked to choose a preference for the simulation and add your CV and a motivation letter. The applications are open until the 3rd of May.
