What is the European Council
The European Council defines the EU's overall political direction and priorities. In our conference the committee will be taking action on the issues.
Following the Copenhagen summit in December 1973, which made provision for summits to be held whenever necessary, the Paris summit of December 1974, hosted by President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, creates the European Council. It was created with the intention of establishing an informal forum for discussion between heads of state or government.
The members of the European Council are the heads of state or government of the 28 EU member states.
What are the topics
The European Council committee will be debating on the following topics;
1- European Union Refugee Protection

Becareful of the name of the committee while doing your researches. Do not confuse the European Council with Council of the European Council and Council of Europe.
