3. Course contents *

The European Negotiations Seminar is embedded in Taceuss, which is an international consortium of 20 European and US Universities (www.eusimulations.org ). Taceuss yearly organises EUROSIM, an international simulation of EU negotiations and decision-making.  The 2020 edition will take place in Antwerp on the theme of the EU external relations / sanctions. The Seminar on European Integration is basically a preparation for the EUROSIM simulation. Participants will receive a thorough introduction in EU decision-making and the theme of the simulation. In addition, skills such as negotiating and debating will be exercised.

This academic year (2019-2020), the seminar runs in the first semester only. It starts on October 1 and ends with the simumation in Antwerp in January 2020.
