Tuesday 1 March: Model Council of the European Union debate, Dublin

Image of 2015 Model CouncilThe 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.
