On June 7 and 8, 2018, as an integral part of the study trip week in Brussels, the INSITER students participated in an international simulation exercise with students from Cologne, Paris and Prague. The overarching idea of the exercise was to discuss the post 2020 EU budget negotiations and adherence to democratic norms in the form of a two day-European Council summit.
Students had started to prepare for the simulation exercise in April already in online interdisciplinary and international teams in order to defend their position at the negotiations. The best teams received an award for their performance. The simulation game was realized in close cooperation with partner universities, the University of Cologne and Sciences Po.
The European Council conclusions prepared by the students can be found here.
