The annual Model Council of the European Union debate for secondary schools will take place in Dublin Castle on Tuesday, 1 March 2016. The theme of the debate is migration. 28 secondary schools will participate.
The Model Council is designed as a simulation of a meeting of the Council of the European Union. Each school takes on the role of one of the 28 EU Member States. The debate is based on a mock European Commission proposal to support Italy and Greece, by relocating migrants in need of international protection to other EU Member States. Schools are asked to adopt a stance either in favour or against the proposal and are encouraged to research and to adopt the official position of the assigned Member State.
