language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 230

**Under 18s**

European Union is a composition of 28 different perspectives, desires and expectations. Meeting halfway is a really complicated process, which is driven by our representatives. Nevertheless, there are some rules which we cannot omit.

In this course you will learn the basics about the EU institutions as well as the EU law, but more importantly, you will learn that negotiations and influence of lobbying groups play a crucial part when it comes to EU politics. Also, we will examine the EU achievements and try to solve the current crisis. Your task will be not only to learn legal basics, but also to use your negotiation and debating skills. We are going to discuss many topics such as protection of the environment and health, development of human rights as well as the future of the EU.

I will try to show you that politics is a very complex process, but at the same time, it is a really interesting one and we should be involved in creating one common goal.
