Negotiation and Decision Making in the EU: A Simulation Game

In the "sim game", students engage in multilateral negotiations within and between EU institutions. Through role-playing, they explore the interactions which occur within and between the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council of Ministers during the process of drawing up EU legislation under the ordinary legislative procedure.

Students gain formal knowledge of the process and techniques of negotiation and decision-making in the EU. In addition, they learn how other factors can affect outcomes, including time pressure, informal discussions that take place on the margins, and personalities.
