Call for application: Global Model EU 2023 in New York

The Brussels School of Governance is looking for a team of four talented and ambitious BSoG students to partake in the Global Model European Union 2023 simulation. 

The Global Model European Union (#GLOBALMEU) conference is a simulation of the European Union organized as a collaboration between colleges and universities around the world. The primary purpose of GLOBAL MEU is to provide a framework for a simulation of a European Council meeting, to better educate students about the European Union while giving them an opportunity to interact with students from EU member and candidate states.

Students will be assigned roles in member state delegations, as heads of government or ministers.

For the purposes of this conference, there are four Council configurations: European Council (Heads of Government-HoGs), Foreign Affairs Council (FAC), Economic and Financial Affairs (ECOFIN) Council, and the Transport, Telecommunication and Energy Council (TTE). Participants play their assigned country’s respective ministers in these configurations. 

The Global MEU Guidebook 2023 will be provided to selected students. 

The event will take place in New York (10-11 January 2023). 

BSoG will cover the simulation fee and up to 1.000 Euros per student for travel and accommodation. As in the previous years, BSoG BA students of all four majors (IA, Business, Communications and Law) in at least their second year of university are welcome to apply. BSoG MA students are also welcome to apply.


How to participate

The deadline for applications is November 7th. Selected students will undergo 2 training sessions prior to the simulation. 

Interested students should prepare a one-page motivation letter and an updated CV (including current GPA). The motivation letter should outline the reasons and motivations for applying, the student’s qualifications and what the student would bring to the team in terms of skills. Prior participation to the SUNY Model EU or similar simulations will be considered a plus.
