Description

Model European Union Zagreb is an international educational conference that gathers the most enthusiastic young people from around the world. It is designed as a combination of the simulation of the decision-making procedure of the EU institutions (the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union), workshops and structural dialogues with decision makers on the current issues.

MEUZ 2017 is the fifth edition of the conference that is annually organized by a group of highly motivated students, whose aim is to spread the knowledge about the EU institutions among their peers and prepare them for the EU of tomorrow.

The participants will be assigned to the following roles: the Presidency of the Parliament and the Council of the EU, Member of the European Parliament, Minister of the Council of the EU, journalist or a lobbyist.
