On our last day in Brussels, we had the chance to complete our impressions of the core European Institutions with a visit to the Council of the European Union. Vincenzo de Voci, the Press and Communication Administrator of the council informed us about the council’s work, its public relations strategy and, most importantly, about the way the EU communicates in times of challenges, such as the current migration crisis. After we asked more questions, it was time to wrap up the seminar with a final discussion of the extremely diverse insights our group got during the past days. In the afternoon, after a feedback-round, it was, sadly, time to go back to Freiburg.
We all perceived the seminar as a greatly enriching experience that taught us a lot of new things about populism and the EU but also made us rethink old views. Lastly, many thanks go to the Verein zur Förderung politischen Handelns #VFH for the excellent cooperation!
