Arriving at this year's 2014 Model European Council session, our group of ten students from the European School Karlsruhe had a lot of different hopes and expectations. As a whole, we were excited to be given the chance to debate and discuss the array of topics we had been researching since November 2013. Naturally, we were also a bit nervous as to how everything would work out, especially since for most of us it was the first time at a conference simulation and for the Greek representatives the first time having to chair such an event. However, from the very moment the session commenced, whatever slight uncertainties we had entering Brussels gave way to not only one of the most enjoyable, but also one of the most educational experiences that we have had the fortune of attending so far in our scholastic years.

The Model European Council (MEC) and Model European Parliament (MEP) programmes were created in 1984, based on the initiative of two teachers at the European School of Munich, Jimmy Campbell and Henry Christian. Since then, these programs have established themselves and developed with great success. Today they are strongly implemented and essential parts of the lives of European Schools. MEC is a realistic simulation of a European Council meeting with ministers and heads of state, i.e. a simulation of the extremely complicated decision-making processes in the European Union. It is an enormous and very complex role-play. A team of pupils representing the European Commission - with support from the real Commission – prepares the proposals before the summit of the Council. The teams taking on the roles of ministers and heads of state then debate these proposals and decide upon them. The themes on the agenda are always the same issues the EU is currently working on. MEP follows the same guidelines: the pupils, however, impersonate members of the European Parliament.

We try to alternate between both programmes. However, MEC takes place more often as it is easier to organise. This is also the reason why the conference is frequently held in Munich as the European Patent Office generously makes its facilities available. There are precise criteria by which interested pupils are chosen. Each school sends one or two teams, each representing a member-state of the EU. Additionally, there are always two journalist crews who accompany and comment the meeting. In this way, the ministers and heads of state learn how to deal with the merciless press.

MEC (Model European Council) is a political simulation, organised by the European Schools.

The topic for the PTK Business Case Competition is related to the Privatization of the PTK, which actually is considered one of the most current issues of the business environment of Kosovo. It is financed by the PTK and created from: Visar Krasniqi and But Dedaj. The second competing discipline was the GTZ Information Communication Technology Case Competition (financed by GTZ) and the case has to do with Kosova Tourism Association. In order to improve the quality of its services to its members and tourists interested to travel to Kosovo for business or pleasure, KOTAS is considering redesigning its current web site by adding a reservation portal that will serve all KOTAS members, providing easy access to all hotels, restaurants, travel agencies for the purpose of booking available capacities. Students of ICT have been assigned to develop a hardware, software and communication solution that will enable booking of hotel facilities of KOTAS members through a web application linked through the KOTAS web site. The third competing discipline is Model European Council (MEC), introduced for the first time within the project. The 13 EU members of European Council were represented by 13 students and discussed about EU enlargement. The case was created by Faris Hadrovic. And the fourth competing discipline is Law Moot Court Case Competition (LMC) where students have been assigned a fictitious case to be solved at the International Court of Justice. MEC and LMC are financed by EAR. Case for the LMC is created by Thomas Skouteris, Professor of Leiden University in the Netherlands.

CUEuS Model European Council 2013 in: Conferences | 22.04.2013

From the very moment we arrived at the official Model European Council site on Thursday, we were all impressed with the sheer grandness of Eurocontrol, the facility which kindly offered to host the event. Not only were we treated with a state-of-the-art conference room featuring both personal microphones and large recording television screens for the joint assemblies, but we were also fortunate enough to have been provided with another four council rooms for the individual committees. Live interpreters sat perched in the surrounding observation rooms translating our speeches into several major European languages, a perk which further added to the professional atmosphere already enhanced by the formal dress environment. It truly did feel like we were real delegates discussing topics in the actual European Council.
