The Conclusions of the SUNY MEU Presidency 2011

Exeter hosted the SUNY Model European Union

The participants from 15 different schools came togeather at the University  from places as far apart as Jamestown, New York, the island state of Malta, Ithaca, to İzmir, Turkey.

The primary aim of SUNYMEU is to provide a framework for a simulation of a European Council meeting to better educate students about the European Union while giving them an opportunity to interact with students from EU member and candidate states.

The students, drawn from all over the SUNY system and their European partner institutions, participated in the simulation at Exeter University 2012. Students ere assigned a role as a representative of a delegation (an EU country or the Commission), as heads of government, foreign ministers, European Commissioners, or even, for journalism majors, as members of the Press Corps. Students prepared for the simulation at their own universities with the help of faculty advisers. Researching the issues of concern to their country and alter-ego roles was an important part of the students’ preparatory work.
