The European Student Conference is a unique opportunity to work alongside globally minded thinkers,
current decision makers, and renowned academics to analyze the role of the EU and its relationship to the United States. Participants will work in small groups led by EU policy makers and professors to develop policy recommendations, seek solutions to the EU’s problems, and think about how to foster greater US-EU relations. The conference merges academic discussion with real-world interaction—by the end of the conference, delegates will create proposals and strategies and will found a US-based student thinktank for EU affairs.
