European Union

This committee will focus on the European Council (not to be confused with the Council of Europe), the body that constitutes the heads of state or government of the European Union’s member states. Delegates will be tasked with representing a member state as their duly elected leader and are expected to follow their character’s political allegiances, regardless of personal disagreements. This committee will address a wide range of issues that may be controversial, such as Brexit, the migrant crisis, terrorism and security, the erosion of democratic norms, and much, much more. Delegates are asked to treat each other with respect and to remember that opinions expressed in committee may not represent the real-life opinions of the individual delegate. It must also be noted that everyone is equal when it comes to voting, regardless of the represented nation’s stature in the European Union. Unlike the actual European Council, the Council President, Commission President, and High Representative will be granted voting rights during these committee sessions.
