May 11-13, 2018
This is the 2nd edition of the simulation of the EU legislative procedure, open to university students. The participants will adopt the roles of the members of the European Commission, European Parliament and the Council of the European Union, following the steps of the ordinary legislative procedure by which directives and regulations are adopted.
The VeUMEU is an excellent opportunity for students to gain an understanding of multilateral diplomacy, and to hone their negotiating and leadership while practising public speaking.
Students will learn about the legislative process, rules of procedure, revision and introduction of amendments and how to draft EU Directives and Regulations.
Participants will act like real MEPs or Council delegates; a group of students will also form the Press Corps, reporting on developments during the weekend of activities.
The participation is open to students of VIU member universities attending the Globalization Program and students from Ca’ Foscari, Iuav, Padova and Tor Vergata universities.
Applications will be open, via the VIU Website, March 19-31, 2018.
Selected students will attend a preparatory workshop in April. The organizing committee chooses the sample proposals for Directives in advance, so that the participants will be well-prepared on arrival to the VeUMEU in May.
There are 5 positions open to VIU students in the organizing committee, deadline for applications March 16.
Positions include 1 Legal Advisor, 1 Study Guide Designer, 2 Pages.
