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 2021 edition will take place in March 2021 at Niagara University, NY, US on the theme of EU Asylum Policy (Dublin Regulation) The Seminar on European Integration is constructed 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.

In the academic year 2020-2021, the seminar starts in November 2020 and ends with a transatlantic simulation, currently scheduled in the US in March 2021. However, travel and health safety restrictions may alter this and force the simulation to be organized (partially) via online tools. Check-out this website for updates.
