Call for applications: “Seminar on the future cooperation between the EU 27 and the United Kingdom after Brexit” (University of Cologne, Germany)

PROTEUS Seminar “The future cooperation between the EU 27 and the United Kingdom after Brexit”, Summer Term 2020, Brussels/Cologne

In this seminar, students will take part in a European Council simulation game which will focus on the negotiations about the future relations between the EU and the UK. It will draft a proposal about a new partnership.

The seminar will start with an introductory session and will be followed by an excursion to Brussels (27th – 30th of April) where the students will get to meet – amongst others – with Herman van Rompuy, former President of the European Council (2009-2014). The seminar will culminate in a simulation exercise (European Council Summit) on negotiating the future institutional relations between the EU and Britain in Cologne (18th – 19th of June).

The objective of the simulation exercise is to bring first-hand understanding of both academic and everyday practice of EU decision-making by offering students insights in “real life” political processes and the possibility to “experience” the EU as a vivid political system as well as to meet politicians, practitioners and stakeholders in the European capital Brussels.
