Through simulations of the EU legislative process, while taking on roles representing member states, the European Commission, and the Council, students will encounter issues that are on the agenda of the European Union from different perspectives. This course is designed to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world practice, offering students insights into the practical implications of EU laws.
