The European Youth Parliament (EYP), which was founded in 1987 as the project of a school in Fontainebleau, is a unique forum designed to actively engage young people in the moulding of their future society. The EYP represents a non-partisan and independent educational project, which is tailored entirely to the needs of the young European citizen. The EYP encourages independent thinking and socio-political initiative in young people and facilitates the learning of crucial social and professional skills. Since its inauguration, many tens of thousands of young people have taken part in regional, national and international sessions, formed friendships and made international contacts across and beyond borders. The EYP has thus made a vital contribution towards uniting Europe. Today the EYP is one of the largest European platforms for political debate, intercultural encounters, political educational work and the exchange of ideas among young people in Europe. The EYP is active in 41 European countries and involves thousands of young and active people in a voluntary capacity. The international umbrella organisation of the EYP is the Schwarzkopf Foundation. In November 2015, the city of Leipzig will host for 10 days heated debates and intercultural dialogue. The 80th International Session of the European Youth Parliament will gather 330 participants to discuss current European affairs, exchange ideas and vision for tomorrow’s Europe. #leipzig2015is https://twitter.com/leipzig2015is

[SEDE] The EU's License to Kill?

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) serve many purposes, but most of all they are hailed for their military potential. Many countries already use UAVs for warfare, but should the EU hop aboard the bandwagon when it comes to this form of often lethal technology? Irida Karasmanoglou (GR) assesses the current legal framework and the main concerns surrounding this new technology in her topic article for the Committee on Security and Defence (SEDE).
