Model EU applications are due on Sep. 29

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

This year, the Department of Political Science and the Center for Global Engagement will support the participation of 10 students in the 25th annual Mid-Atlantic European Union Simulation (http://eu-simulation.org) in Washington, DC from Nov. 8 through Nov 11, 2017. 

Funding has been arranged to cover the participating students’ transportation to Washington; three nights of hotel accommodation (sharing a room with other students); a working lunch with students in JMU's Washington Semester program; and an awards dinner and reception at the simulation.

Over 100 students from colleges and universities throughout the mid-Atlantic region will participate in the simulation. The simulation will deal with two of the most pressing issues currently on the EU’s agenda – the British withdrawal from the European Union (Brexit) and the decision about whether/how to address concerns about the deterioration of the rule of law in Hungary and Poland.
