This course is an applied course seeking to allow students to learn by engaging in role play. It carries mostly a practical dimension as it familiarizes students with E.U. policy and decision-making by assigning them specific roles in a simulation involving all three E.U. institutions within a given policy scenario. Lectures will give students a basic foundation to the E.U. legislative process, the EU institutional framework, and the role of member states, MEPs, and lobbies.
