The SUNY Model EU is a project funded by the Institute of European Union Studies at SUNY (IEUSS), through the Office of Global Affairs, SUNY System Administration.
The Model European Union is an adaptation of the popular Model United Nations (MUN), but differs in its conception, organization, roles, and outcomes. The MUN is, by and large, a simulation for students of diplomacy and foreign affairs, while the Model EU (MEU) simulates some aspects of the institutional structures and decision-making processes of the European Union.
In 2010/2011 Lille 1 University became the first French university taking part in the SUNY Model European Union. A delegation of 9 MEA students flew to New York, where the SUNY project took place, to represent the teams of the Head of the Government, the Ecofin minister, the Foreign Affairs minister and the Coreper representative of 2 European countries chosen for the delegation by the organizers.
The student taking part in this video are having the desire to take part in the SUNY Model EU in New York.
