Детальний опис англійською:
Each year, the conference brings together 200 highly motivated students and young professional, giving them the exclusive opportunity to have first-hand experience of the functioning of European institutions right on the premises of the European Parliament. The project is thus completely original in the world of simulations and is already extremely popular among young Europeans from diverse backgrounds, from Law, International Relations, Political Science and European Affairs to History, Media Studies, and Interpreting.
During the course of the simulation, participants debate two controversial, real-life legislative proposals drafted by the European Commission and simulate EU law-making by acting as Members of the European Parliament or Members of the Council of the European Union. The simulation, however, features even more roles for participants in order to enhance its realism. Specifically, participants can also act as: (1) Lobbyists, that work towards influencing the decision-making process in favour of the interests they represent; (2) Journalists, who, through press conferences and interviews, cover and analyse debates in a daily newspaper and video footage; and (3) Interpreters, offering professional interpreting services in the national languages of the EU using the special equipment provided by the European Parliament.
