What is an MEU?
An MEU, or Model European Union, is a political simulation where you get to learn about and simulate the inner workings of the European Union institutions, in particular the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.
About MEU Netherlands
Our 2021 edition will take place in the summer of 2021 in The Hague, the administrative heart of the Netherlands. During the 4-day simulation, you will have the opportunity to debate two exciting legislative proposals, take part in our evening socials, and meet youngsters from all over Europe and beyond.
Here at MEU Netherlands, we’ve got something for everyone’s tastes! Take your pick between four roles: Member of the European Parliament, Minister, Lobbyist, or Journalist. As an MEP or Minister, you will debate and propose amendments to two legislative proposals of the European Commission. As a Lobbyist, you will try to influence legislators and push your interests. Finally, as a Journalist, you will have the opportunity to write articles, interview legislators and lobbyists, and gain an insight into the world of political journalism.
