Brussels is the political heart of Europe with immense political and economic influence. Get the chance to become more familiar with the structures of the EU as well as to address critical questions pertaining to its future role. Will the economic differences between the Member States affect the political aspects of its work? Does the EU have a clear vision of its role globally? What is the future of the Eurozone and Schengen? How will the refugee crisis influence the Union? Visit the most important EU institutions, including the European Parliament and the European Commission to discuss politics in the EU, but also enjoy the sightseeing of Brussels, and of course try some Belgian beers and
waffles. The focus of the trip is to learn about the roles of these main bodies of the EU and their political and economic influence. Enjoy speakers from all of these institutions, and participate in seminars.
