Formed in 1993, the European Union (EU) is a monetary and political union consisting of 28 states located across Europe. This union serves to instill economic stability in the region, first developed as a trading union, from the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) and the European Economic Community (EEC). The EU has grown to be a massively influential and powerful group, with some of the most dominant economies and nation-states in the world.

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 eu@cahsmun.org.

Cynthia Gan | Director

Cynthia is currently a junior at Richmond Christian School and is delighted to be serving as Director of the EU at CAHSMUN 2020. Starting Model UN at the beginning of her sophomore year, it has since fostered a passion and love for global affairs, diplomacy, and the opportunity to work with the most intelligent and motivated community of students in the lower mainland. Outside of Model UN and school, she enjoys debating, writing contemporary poetry, and volunteering; more often, though, she can simply be found indulging her book-thrifting obsession, spending far too much on food with friends, and dabbling in music. She looks forward to an exciting weekend of debate, leadership, and diplomacy.

Joseph Jung | Chair

Joseph is currently a junior at Port Moody Secondary School and is excited to serve as the chair for EU! Ever since attending his first conference in grade 9, he has developed a passion for speaking out his voice and discussing current issues. Through MUN, Joseph has met many amazing people and found an interest in debate and group work. In his spare time, you can see Joseph watching Netflix or sending memes in a group chat only to get left on read. Joseph is excited for this opportunity to witness an unforgettable conference.
