European debating

European collaboration has steadily increased over the past 70 years. Because of this, Europe has become one of the most prosperous areas of the world. However, not everybody agrees with the way the European Union is shaped. Why is that and how do European debates look like?

In this masterclass, you will learn about the history of the European Union and how it functions. Students and teachers of the University will learn you the basic principles of the EU and how negotiations take place. Together with your fellow pupils you will learn how to debate, with several real-life cases. Would you like to be a part of this? Sign up here for the masterclass.

After this masterclass, you are familiar with

  • the different European institutions and the interaction between them;
  • different forms of governments and their ups and downs;
  • applying theoretical concepts in debates;
  • effective debating, with a final debate in the boardroom in Enschede.
