Asia Pacific Model European Union


The sixth Asia Pacific Model European Union (APEMU) was held at the University of Canterbury on 25 and 26 May 2018. It brought together 28 postgraduate students from the Asia Pacific region and New Zealand to simulate the European Union’s decision-making process, promoting a better understanding of European Integration. 

Participants assumed the roles of Heads of State and/or Ministers of EU Member States. The simulation focused on the European Consensus on Development, a shared vision and framework for action for development cooperation for the EU and its Member States. It is a blueprint which aligns the Union’s development policy with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Participants were EU Studies postgraduate students from China, Hong Kong, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.

The project is co-funded by an European Commission grant and jointly organised between the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), the National Centre for Research on Europe (NCRE) and European Union Centres Network (EUCN).
