MEUS is a simulation of the European Union’s decision-making process, a project bringing together more than 180 young Europeans at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, in April 2016 and over 1,300 young Europeans since the project’s foundation in 2007. For one week, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the inner-workings of the EU, by taking on roles such as Members of the European Parliament, Ministers of the Council of the EU, journalists, lobbyists and interpreters. Within these roles they will discuss two up-to-ate European political topics - Refugee crisis, and the use of Renewable energy.
The main purpose of the conference is the simulation of the EU's decision-making process, in this case the ordinary legislative procedure and consent procedure between the European Parliament and the Council of the EU. During the conference the participants will learn how the legislative process between these two institutions works and what a working life in the institutions of the European Union feels like.
