Unit 7 Model European Union & The Syrian Refugee Crisis

In this unit, students will understand the various perspectives of European nations in how to respond to the Syrian Refugee Crisis of 2011-2016 by actively participating in a role play activity. The goals of this project are to: 1) understand the crisis from various European perspectives; 2) engage in a simulation that attempts to demonstrate the challenges of supranational cooperation amongst EU nations; and 3) to ultimately find a solution to this crisis.
