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.
