Model European Union Granada is a simulation of the ordinary legislative procedure of the European Union. MEUG mainly aims to provide university students with a thorough knowledge of the decision-making process (ordinary legislative procedure) which is carried out in the EU headquarters. It vividly represents the way new EU legislation comes to force. The European Commission, played by the organising team, drafts and initiates the new legislation while the European Parliament and the Council of the EU, played by the participants, decide to amend it, adopt it or reject it. This way, participants are assigned roles either as Members of the European Parliament or as Ministers of the Council. In order to facilitate communication between both institutions and to provide the project with a touch of reality, participants will also play the role of journalists and interpreters.
It is being organised by BETA España, a non-profit national youth association founded in the summer of 2011 and whose primary goal is to bring young people closer to how EU institutions work.
We believe that this project will not only give students a more in-depth knowledge about how the EU legislative procedure works but it will also give them the chance to live it first hand!
