Sem/Üb-BQ/MA-EU: EU- Institutions and Decision Making / EU-Simulation

Univ-Prof. Dr. Arne Niemann

Kurzname: Sem EU

Inhalt

“Multilevel Governance in the EU is the topic of the course. You will learn about the most important institutions - Commission, Council and Parliament - and their decision-making process in EU-multilevel governance.
As the core of the course, participants will simulate EU decision-making in Model EU Mainz (MEUM). Around 80 participants from all over Europe will come to Mainz for the simulation (July 05-8, 2017) of the ordinary legislative procedure. Participants will slip into the roles of national Ministers, Members of the European Parliament and Journalists. MEUM offers young Europeans the chance to get a first-hand insight into the workings of the complex political system that is the European Union. Starting point for the debate will be two proposals for legislation drafted by the European Commission. Participants, in their roles as MEPs and Ministers, will deliver speeches, work on amendments to the proposal texts and organize majorities in order to adopt their suggestions for changes to the legislation while Journalists will monitor and critically report on this political process.
