Interested in becoming a eurodeputy? Take part in the French-speaking model European Parliament!
The SPECQUE (acronym for Simulation du Parlement européen Canada-Quebec-Europe) is an international French-speaking model European Parliament, the largest of its kind. Founded in 1998 by students of Laval University (Quebec), it has become a reference for models on both sides of the Atlantic. Since its first edition, the SPECQUE has developed the double ambition of promoting the major issues of European current affairs and of giving its participants an inside look into the functioning of the European Parliament. Beyond these academic goals, the SPECQUE allows students from all over Europe and Canada to broaden their horizons by exchanging ideas and opinions (specque.org/english).
In 2017, uOttawa students will have the opportunity to take part in the SPECQUE in Prague (Czech Republic ), from July 30 to August 6, 2017.
