How to take part? What Euro.Pa.S is Briefing on Euro.Pa.S 2013 Euro.Pa.S is an initiative of IRTEA which aims at educating young people on European affairs.

It is organised for the 4th consecutive year by IRTEA with the support of the University of Piraeus, the European Parliament’s Office in Greece, the European Commission’s Delegation in Greece and the French Institute of Athens.

Overall, in its 3 years, it has brought successfully together more than 700 participants.

This year’s conference will be held on 26th-29th April 2013, at the premises of the University of Piraeus and the French Institute of Athens. How it actually works Euro.Pa.S is a simulation! A role playing game!

All participants are either Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) or Heads of a State.
They are therefore, elected members of the Parliament that come from an EU state and are members of a certain political party or the Heads of one of EU's 27 States representing their state in the European Council.

The "job" of every participant is to shape
through its research, according to its
assignment, the role that he will be
playing during the
conference. Euro.Pa.S simulates 6 committees
of the European Parliament Foreign Affairs (AFET)

Human Rights (DROI), in French
