The European Union was created in 1993 to both politically and economically unify a number of European countries. Currently, it is composed of 28 nations. The EU was created in response to the devastation of World War II in hopes of preventing the violence and oppression that occurred during the war from happening again. Essentially, it is a union that was created to establish and maintain peace. However, as the years pass, challenges have arisen within the EU. These difficulties include issues such as the European Immigration Crisis, and the upcoming separatism of the United Kingdom from the EU.
EU is primarily designed for intermediate delegates. Though position papers are not required, they are recommended to ensure delegates feel prepared and comfortable throughout the conference.
