SCUE – Simulation du Conseil de l’Union européenne


SCUE is an association created in 2016 by students from University of Montreal. Every year, it offers to students from everywhere the opportunity to participate in meetings following the model of the European Union ministry Council. The objective of the simulation is to promote the European Union among students from different universities and CEGEPs (French and English-speaking), by organizing a simulation that will take place in French over four days. In order to allow as many people as possible to participate, we offer training on various key topics related to the program, while keeping registration fees low. During the simulation, which runs from 30 April to 3 May, participants take part, as “ministers of the Member States”, in debates and negotiations on the main European issues.


SPECQUE – La Simulation du Parlement européen Canada-Québec-Europe

La SPECQUE is a transatlantic French-speaking simulation of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. Rotating each year between the two continents, participants take part in a replica of the European Union’s legislative process for a week, portraying MEPs, lobbyists, parliamentary journalists, commissioners, ministers of member states, and more. Each edition addresses several fundamental issues of European current affairs within sessions and specialized committees modeled on the official framework. Participants have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills, learn the basics of negotiation, and familiarize themselves with the European Union’s legislative process. Bringing together French-speaking and Francophile students from all over the world, SPECQUE aims to promote democracy and the Francophonie by maintaining academic and professional relationships.
