How Committees Work

Before the beginning of the session, Delegates are divided into committees,

which are led and moderated by the Chairperson.

 

A committee is a group of delegates focussing on a single European issue

through discussion and debate. There are committees focusing on foreign affairs,

environmental issues, cultural developments, and more. Over the course of 3 to

4 days, during the programme element called 'Committee Work', they analyze the

problem and develop a suggested solution in the form of a written resolution.

 

During the 'General Assembly', the final event of the session, each committee presents

its resolution to all other committees, and the entire session engages in debate about the proposed solutions. Finally, the proposed resolution is voted on, and either accepted or rejected.
