Formed in 1993, the European Union (EU) is a monetary and political coalition consisting of 28 states located across Europe. First conceived as a trading cooperation initiative named the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), this organization quickly expanded to encompass most of Europe, and through decades of development, the EU has become a potent political entity. 

Today's European Union does not only aim to instill economic stability within its own borders, but it also acts as an influential player on the stage of global politics. With some of the most dominant economies and nation-states in the world as its members, the EU aims to promote peace and prosperity both in and outside Europe.

EU is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity as delegates. Position papers are strongly recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page. 

Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to

Jeffrey Shen | Director
Jeffrey is currently a Grade 11 student attending Pinetree Secondary School, and he is ecstatic to be staffing at CAHSMUN 2018. He first became involved with Model UN in Grade 9, and his first ever conference was CAHSMUN 2016. Since then, Jeffrey has delegated and staffed at numerous conferences and is extremely excited to be directing for the first time. Outside of school, Jeffrey loves to debate, experiment with vegan recipes (even though he is not a vegan), and discover new indie-rock bands on Spotify. He is looking forward to a weekend full of lively debate and productive discussion!
