Dear prospective delegates,
Princeton European Youth Parliament (PEYP) is very excited to welcome you to participate in a unique project aimed at bringing young European and American leaders together on Princeton campus to discuss political and economic issues on December 6-9, 2012.
The project will take a format of a conference, which will set off an open dialogue among the brightest minds of Europe and Princeton about current issues in European politics and European-American affairs.
The PEYP team understands today's importance of academic focus on European public affairs and we hope that this conference will contribute much to the exchange of ideas and knowledge among future global leaders. The participants will have a unique opportunity to meet young politicians both from numerous European countries. The reports that the delegates produce as a part of the conference will be published on behalf of Princeton University and submitted to the EU Parliament.
The conference will take a format of multiple working groups in which the participants will discuss a specific topic and come up with proposals for policy makers. Each group will have a moderator and an expert from Princeton faculty or alumni. The proposals will be presented on the last day of the conference in a format of presentations from the groups and will be published on our website. Apart from the working groups, the conference will also be speakers that are experts in the public policy field.
The conference is determined to attract 1-2 participants from each of the two biggest parties' youth movements in European country - European People's Party and Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats. We are aiming at receiving delegates from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Great Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Iceland, Austria, the Netherlands, Ireland, Greece, Poland, Romania, Finland, Czech Republic, Serbia, Kosovo, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania. Princeton will have approximately 20 delegates.
