The Model European Union is an annual simulation of a European Council Summit, bringing together undergraduate students from across the United States. Students, in teams of two, play the roles of representatives of European Union Member State delegations, and also the European Commission. Participants negotiate two issues of concern for the Presidency, Romania (holding the presidency from January-June). The 2019 Model European Union will take place at the University of Washington on March 8-9, 2019. Future Model European Union competitions will be announced in late spring.

Topics for the 2019 competition:

  • Common Immigration and Border Scheme
  • Pipelines/Projects of Common Interest/Energy Independence

For a detailed description of these topics, please view the Communication of the Presidency below.
