OUR MISSION

The Munich European Forum (MEF) is a non-profit association dedicated to the political and academic education of students and young professionals. The annual highlight is the week-long simulated conference “Brussels European Forum”.

 

By bringing together students from all over Europe and the rest of the world, our conference promotes international understanding as well as offering a unique networking opportunity. A week full of negotiations, discussions and debates on current political issues gives our participants a deep understanding of international decision-making processes within the EU, G-20 and NATO. The diverse programme includes a visit to NATO Headquarters, the European Commission and the European Parliament in Brussels, where our participants can attend briefings and discussion with real decision makers. Combining simulation sessions with reality checks, we ensure an unique and rewarding learning experience for students and young professionals.

 

Our experienced staff and the Academic Council of the Munich European Forum guarantee a high-quality and realistic conference. Our members include graduates and postgraduates from universities all over Europe and across the world. Bringing together the combined experiences of members active in private organisations, think tanks and political institutions, the Munich European Forum offers an excellent network for the decision-makers of tomorrow.
