Promoting Free and Fair Elections: A Regional Project for Europe
February 10 - 13, 2016
About the European Union
The European Union is made up of 28 countries and four main institutions: The European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the Court of Justice. It allows people and goods to flow freely between members of the EU as if it were one single country. Recently, with the UK leaving the EU, the political system will have to negotiate and agree on new terms. Political participants of the EU and the UK now have the task of undoing 43 years of treaties and picking apart British laws from the ones of the EU.
About the Program
The IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging foreign leaders. Over the last 70 years, the IVLP has developed into the premier professional exchange program in the U.S. and brings over 200 emerging leaders to Jacksonville every year.
