Global Model European Union

January 13-15, 2022Virtual edition

The Global Model EU Conference was the most exciting and valuable academic experience as a young student. My favourite aspect of the simulation was the complexity of the EU decision-making, which made me think about a future career in the field. It is a fantastic experience, valuable for each student who wants to understand the European Union and the negotiations of preferences between the EU members states.

The Global Model European Union (GLOBALMEU) is a simulation of the European Union organized in partnership with universities worldwide. The simulation meets in Brussels in even years and New York in odd years. The 2022 edition was organized virtually between 13-15 January due to the Covid-19 pandemic and reunited participants from fourteen universities. 

Luiza Ganță and Luca Urda, first-year students in the English line Security Studies programme, Department of International Studies and Contemporary History have represented the delegation of Netherlands and discussed for three days with fellow delegates in the Foreign Affairs Council and European Council on the current challenges facing the EU.

The simulation was a valuable learning experience on EU affairs, and participation was supported through the Jean Monnet Module Digital teaching and learning in the field of EU Integration Studies in the new member states(D-Skills).

April, 10-11 and April 17-18, 2021-Virtual Edition

SUNY MEU has been the most eye-opening experience I have ever had so far. It gave me the opportunity to meet talented young people with whom we put our minds together to try and come up with the best solutions for some of the most important issues that the European Union is facing. SUNY MEU 2021 has been memorable, nurturing and I have created beautiful bonds with students around the globe. What I have appreciated the most was the generosity and engagement in every single participant, whether being a student, professor, host or a coordinator while the common aim was for everyone to be included and heard. If the online version was a complete success, I cannot wait for the physical one.

The Global Model European Union is organized in partnership with universities worldwide. The 2021 edition was organized virtually for two weekends in April due to the Covid-19 pandemic and reunited 128 participants.

The Department of International Studies and Contemporary History has participated with a delegation of eight students enrolled in the undergraduate programs of Security Studies-Romanian and English line(Codruța Vârlan, Daniela Nițucă, Daniel Coca, Andi Todoruț, Cătălin Filip and Andreea Florescu) and two students from the undergraduate programme International Relations and European Studies(Ariana Baciu) and from the graduate programme History, Memory and Orality(Gabriel Zvîncă).

The students were organized in individual(Netherlands) and transnational delegations(Sweden and Cyprus) with Jamestown Community College and LeMoyne College, US. The simulation programme was a highly productive learning experience on the preferences and contribution to the EU project of states like Cyprus, Greece and the Netherlands but also on the current challenges faced by the EU: reducing the EU knowledge deficit or rebuilding the EU economy) or issue of foreign relations(relations with Saudi Arabia and the Alliance of Small Island States).
