Visiting the European Council

On November 7th, we had a field trip to the heart of Europe, the capital of Belgium: Brussels. The students of the European Policy- and Decision-Making class, taught by Professor Dr. Katja Biedenkopf, visited the European Council, among other EU institutions. There, we listened to an eye-opening presentation of an EU-official working on Brexit.
