A group of second-year students pursuing a Diploma in Diplomatic Studies at the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies (Medac) at University recently visited the European Parliament and other European institutions in Strasbourg, France, to get better acquainted with the Europeangovernance system.
Among other places the group visited the Maltese Representation to the EU and the European Parliament, where they were given a presentation on how the Council of Ministers, the European Parliament, the European Commission and the European Court of Justice function together, while Maltese MEPs Simon Busuttil and Edward Scicluna explained the European Parliament’s functions.
During a visit to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg the group took part in a question and answer session with ECHR judge Vincent Degaetano.
The visit was partially financed by the European Parliament under the ‘Opinion Multiplier Scheme’.
