Rockefeller Goes to Belgium
Rockefeller Students Travel to Belgium to Study Multilevel Governance and Take Part in Model EU
Students outside the EU Concilium
A group of 13 students from Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy at the University at Albany traveled to Brussels, Belgium for an intersession course on multilevel governance and to participate in the 2014 SUNY Model EU hosted by Belgium's Vesalius College, January 7-10. At the largest and oldest U.S. organized Model EU, they joined over 150 students from New York State, Iowa, Maryland, France, Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Belgium, Macedonia, Ireland, the Congo, and the United Kingdom.

SUNY Model EU is an annual simulation of the European Union organized by the Institute for European Union Studies at SUNY (IEUSS), SUNY New Paltz, and the SUNY Office of Global Affairs. It provides a framework for a simulation of a European Council meeting to educate American students about the European Union while giving them an opportunity to interact with students from EU member and candidate states. Each student is assigned a role as a representative of a delegation (an EU country or the Commission), head of government, foreign minister, European commissioner, or member of the press corps. Students prepare for the simulation at their own universities with the help of faculty advisers. Throughout the course of the exercise, students discuss, debate, negotiate, and try to reach compromise on a number of proposals at issue. They do so by following actual EU procedures.
