- Topic A: The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)
Topic B: Reforming Schengen
Eliana is a Canadian Masters student currently studying towards her degree in Counterterrorism and Homeland Security Studies at the IDC Herzliya in Israel. Counterbalancing Léo’s unassailable status as “Mr. Europe” on the MUN circuit, Eliana brings with her the diplomatic experience of conferences and committees beyond the European Union.
She has participated in over twenty MUN conferences: having delegated at major international conferences such as CUIMUN and WorldMUN, and served as chair at numerous others, conference academic advisor for MTAMUN 2014, the USG for HolylandMUN 2014, the USG Academics for C’MUN 2015, and one of the Secretary Generals for HolylandMUN 2015. Eliana will also be serving as the Director of the IMF at OxiMUN this November.
Asked for a quote, Eliana just gave us a cold stare – but we promise she is much friendlier with delegates.
Léo is a dual-masters student in European Affairs at SciencesPo Paris and at the London School of Economics, having previously studied Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent with a year at Freie Universität Berlin. Originally from Lyon in France, Léo was brought up bilingually thanks to an English father and a French mother.
He started chairing MUN conferences in 2012, and has since then chaired simulations of the European Council at MUN conferences in Milan (MILMUN), Sheffield (SheffMUN), Oxford (OxIMUN) and Cambridge (CUIMUN). When he is not geeking in the library or helping out with Model European Union events, Léo can be found doing night photography.
Quote: “Having begun as a delegate at CUIMUN for the first time in 2010, I am absolutely delighted to being back for my third time as chair of the European Council! Neither Cambridge nor the Council ever get old, and besides: we are in very exciting times to be simulating EU politics!"
