The European Negotiations Seminar is embedded in Taceuss, which is an international consortium of 20 European and US Universities ( ). 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.
