Here is the material of the speakers on the actions carried out during the seminars, and the one proposed by the Observatory for the Technical Symposium and passing the final exam.


Seminars 2014 “The European Union and the challenge of elections 2014”

The seminars are held every Thursday from 15:00 to 18:00 in the Chamber Gini from 3 April 2014. The topics of the seminars will be the archittettura of European governance and the reform proposals of the same, monetary policy, the reforms undertaken so far from Brussels.

The material of the meetings will be progressively updated by the staff of the Observatory. For the posters and more information, see the box “events” on the homepage of this website.

It reminds all participants will be shortly added a document excel on the facebook page of the Observatory (European Observatory) in which participants will be asked to enter the group that represents a country, whose positions will then be defended in the Council . For those who does not have time to register in these two days, Thursday, April 10 during the seminars will be finalized the procedure.

Below is the list attached with the reference groups for the simulation of the European Council. The simulation will consist of a discussion between Heads of Delegation for issuing of three policy proposals for the reform of European governance. The theme chosen for this year is therefore the reform of European governance, on which all groups are called to reflection, contributing significantly to the work which will then be carried out by the Head of Delegation of the Council in the simulation. You will have to get to the simulation with a programmatic paper of three proposals that take into account the needs of the country assigned, which must be defended as a priority economic or political interests. These proposals will then be discussed in council by the Head of Delegation to arrive at a synthesis so common on governance reform.

For the material, in addition to that taken from this series of seminars, you can refer to the whole site of the European Observatory, as well as the free search of sources on the web. Among them we want to review the institutional portals of the Commission, the ECB and the Parliament, as well as detailed country reports set aside annually for each country by the European institutions.

Below, HERE, you can view the groups formed by the work of the seminars.

Wishing good luck to all, we refer to our email address for any questions about the job.
