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.
