What is it about

The EWEI Model EU Brussels is a project conducted by the Eastwest European Institute in partnership with Associazione Diplomatici in which university students and recent graduates with the most varied and multicultural background are invited to rethink the concept of Europe by proposing and discussing their own ideas and solutions on current issues by taking on the role of Commissioners, Council members and Parliamentarians, thus building for the future a network of young professionals with a strong awareness of European values.

The main goal of the project is to make participants learn more about the functioning of the main European institutions thanks to direct experience of the ordinary EU legislative procedure, the “Trilogue”, with the learning by doing method.

Project

Each participant will be called to represent a member of Parliament or to take on the role of EU Commissioner or Minister of the Council of the EU to confront other European and international students on issues of crucial importance for the European agenda and draft legislative proposals on relevant topics.

The goal is to identify the three priority projects on which to focus efforts to draw “The future of Europe”.

The members of the Trilogue will be received by the Vice President of the European Commission Dubravka Šuica to whom the final document of the simulation will be delivered, which will then be advertised in the media.

Training course

In the months preceding the simulation, the delegates will take part in a training course held online through an e-learning platform.

In particular, they will take part in a series of meetings held by experts, journalists from the eastwest magazine and diplomats.

In this way, students will have the opportunity to have a complete understanding of the policies adopted by the Member States and political parties and thus be ready to put into practice the knowledge acquired.

The knowledge of the functioning of the European institutions will be deepened, a focus will be placed on the “Trilogue” and on the techniques of public speaking and diplomatic negotiations.

The online course and all communications with the staff will be held in English, the official language of the project.

Simulations

On the 05, 06 and 07 of October, simulations of the three major European institutions and the “Trilogue” will be held in the offices of the European Union in Brussels, with the aim of providing students with complete knowledge of the decision-making process of the European Union.

The “Trilogue” refers to a consultation between the Parliament, the Commission and the Council of the EU on legislative proposals, aimed at reaching a common final position.
