Mock Council of the European Union Northern Ireland

With the event now in its 9th year, Mock Council of the European Union continues to provide an interesting and exciting experience for those involved and an opportunity to develop debating skills as well as increase their knowledge about the European Union.

The Mock Council of the European Union is an annual event organised by the British Council in partnership with the European Commission Office in Northern Ireland.

The event held in the Senate Chamber in Stormont, brings together students and teachers from 29 schools from across Northern Ireland. Each of the participating schools represents an EU country with teams of three students taking on the roles of government ministers. As in the real Council of the European Union, students have the opportunity to debate and vote on topical issues.

This year the two topics will be:

•Democratic Deficit? Democracy in the run-up to the European Parliament elections in 2014
•European energy needs in a global market
