SUNY Brockport EuroSim Club

The European Union has continually risen in prominence over the last fifty years and is rapidly becoming one of the major power players on the international stage. At the same time it represents a fairly unique experiment among nations to create a supranational body above the individual nations of the EU. Since 1988 when Emerti Professor William G. Andrews created the first EuroSim, students from Brockport have attended mock simulations of the European Union to better understand this unique entity. Today EuroSim has expanded from its humble roots here in Brockport to an annual conference alternating between the US and Europe with over two hundred students participating from twenty two universities in both Europe and the United States. This presentation will help to explain some basics of the EU and the simulation process, along with additional information about the topic area of the conference itself. This past year Brockport traveled to the University of Lower Silesia in Wroclaw, Poland to participate in the 2012 EuroSim Conference. Students will have the privilege of hearing the club members' experiences both at the conference and the cultural side trips.

Please note that presentation times are approximate. If you are interested in attending sessions with multiple presentations, please be in the room at the start of the session.
