Team of BSoG students shines at Global SUNY Model EU (online) Simulation 2021

A delegation of BSoG students participated in the Global SUNY Model EU Simulation, a large-scale event organised by the SUNY – The State University of New York. Because of the current circumstances, SUNY Model EU 2021 was organised as a virtual event that took place over the course of two weekends: April 10-11 and April 17-18, 2021 via Zoom. Our delegation consisted of students from our MA programmes, BA in International Affairs, and BA in International and European Law programmes.

During those two weekends, over 120 students and universities represented country delegations in preparing to attend a European Council Summit. Students had the chance to debate the most significant questions facing Europe, and play the role of EU leaders and officials, drafting and debating a policy agenda that reflects the real contemporary problems faced by EU member states and the Portuguese EU Presidency

The BSoG’s team represented Germany in the simulation and included the following students:

  • Christoph Lhotka as Prime Minister
  • Tina Scholz as Minister of Finance
  • Ana Estopa Gomez as Foreign Affairs Minister
  • Etienne Marais as Ambassador to the EU

The team performed remarkably well: Tina Scholz received a mention as the most diplomatic delegate and Christoph Lhotka as the most likely delegate to work for the EU. Curious to know more, check out the SUNY MEUS produced by students.
