The course aims at introducing various negotiating situations and methods used in the EU based on real-life examples and on interactive sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to gain insider knowledge of the actors, methods, instruments and inputs used to negotiate legislative files in the EU. The course will therefore prepare the participants in a practical manner and also help them deepen their knowledge or the EU as such and understanding better its legislation.

The seminar will combine theoretical courses to explain how the EU legislative process works in practice in terms of negotiating the legislative files as well as interactive sessions based on publicly available online material in English. In this basis, the seminar will be rounded up by a simulation exercise to test in practice the roles, methods and goals of the different institutions, parties and relevant stakeholders. Participants are expected also to write a short evaluation paper of the performance of other actors in the negotiation.
