What Is It?
The European Council is composed of the 28 heads of state or government of the EU member states, the European Council President and the President of the European Commission. The role of the council is to define the EU's overall political direction and priorities, setting the EU's policy agenda and identifying issues of concern and actions to take.
Topic A: "EU Expansion: Dialogue with the Western Balkan States?"

My name is Chloe and I'm a final year Law student at the University of Bristol, where I also serve as the President of the Model United Nations Society. I began MUN when I was 14, back in the place I was born and raised: Israel. I then moved to Hong Kong and founded the MUN Club at my new school in 2012.
I've attended conferences across continents in various roles. When I'm not indulging in International Relations and negotiations in MUN, I can be spotted buried in law books, cooking and playing racquet sports. I am avid lover of pints of cider, bottles of white wine and glasses of Aperol Spritz. I'm pretty much 68% English, 27% Hong Kong & 5% Israeli. See you all at Readimun 2018, if you see an Asian who doesn't get 'asian flush', then you've found me!
I am Benjamin Hammett the Chair of the European council. I am a second-year politics and international relations student. I became interested in Model United Nations because I was interested in international politics and enjoyed debating and I thought it would combine those interests so I decided to try it out.
During my first year of Model United Nations I participated in four conferences in differing locations like Sheffield, Bristol and Kent winning delegate awards at two. As a delegate, I have managed to sell large chunks Venezuela’s land to the UNGA, been a climate change denying Poland, unleashed a horde of rabid goats on New Vegas and sparked a war between Ireland and Scotland during an English civil war crisis and been elected as the society’s external conference officer.
Outside of model united nations my other interests are Warhammer 40k, collecting Yugioh cards, Poker, Airsoft and Video games such as HOI 4 and Overwatch. This will be my first time chairing at a conference and I very match look forward to being a chair on the European council at Redimun 2018.
