Experience the complicated path a bill has to take in order to become a law in the EU
The EU Law Game is is a role-playing game that gives players insight into the network of decision making institutions in the EU: European Parliament, Commission, Council of the European Union... It does so in a recreational way. Players experience the path a legal bill has to take in order to become a law in the EU. While taking on different roles they discuss new bills, define priorities, and try to bring the bills through all the institutions and steps of legislation so that the law can finally step into force.
All the stages of the European legislation are covered.
The main objective is to learn how in the EU laws are made, and how a bill is passed by agreement between all relevant institutions.
When it comes to address EU institutions and the European decision-making process, this game is a good start.
Participants have to combine both the knowledge and learning part based on concepts-theories and the process part based on more operational aspects.
