The students of the BA degree course Political Science, International Relations and Human Rights of the University of Padua carried out a simulation session of the European Parliament Constitutional Affairs Committee.
Course "European Union Political System", prof. Marco Mascia
The students of the Degree's Course in Political Science, Internal Relations and Human Rights of the University of Padua simulated a session of the European Parliament Constitutional Affairs Committee.
The goal of the simulation is to approve a resolution on the promotion of a European political union, to realise through four different thematic areas: economics (with particular reference to employment, growth and development); democratic participation of citizens (art. 11 of the Lisbon Treaty); institutional reforms; multilevel governance and participation of regional and local authorities.
All the European political groups participating in the Constitutional Affairs Committee were represented by students. In addition, three speakers summarised the proposals and the amendments of each political group in order to achieve a final resolution.
The simulation aimed to encourage a better understanding of the decision-making mechanisms within the Constitutional Affairs Committee and the European Parliament, as well as the debate related to the constitution of an European political union.
