VeUMEU Venice Universities' Model European Union
=> In compliance with Covid-19 restrictions, the event was held online for registered students
The fourth edition of VeUMEU Venice Universities' Model European Union was held on 13 and 14 November 2020.
- Ca' Foscari University of Venice,
- Venice Diplomatic Society,
- Europe Direct del Comune di Venezia,
- Bringing Europeans Together Association (BETA Italia),
- Eiuc-European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights,
- San Servolo Servizi
The event is supported also by the European Parliamentary.
Since it's a simulation of the EU legislative procedure, the participants adopt the roles of the members of the European Commission, European Parliament and Council of the European Union, following the steps of the ordinary legislative procedure by which directives and regulations are adopted. A group of students will also form the Press Corps, reporting on developments during the weekend of activities.
The VeUMEU is an excellent opportunity for students to gain an understanding of multilateral diplomacy, and to hone their negotiating and leadership while practising public speaking.
Students learn about the legislative process, rules of procedure, revision and introduction of amendments, and how to draft EU Directives and Regulations.
