The European Union is a unique economic and political union between the 27 EU countries.
The European Economic Community, (EEC) predecessor of the EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War in 1958 to increase economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries that trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict.
Since then, 22 other members joined. However, on 31 January 2020 the United Kingdom left the European Union.
What began as a purely economic union has now evolved into an organization spanning policy areas from climate, environment and health to external relations and security, justice and migration. The name was changed from the European Economic Community (EEC) to the European Union (EU) in 1993.

It is my privilege to welcome you to the European Union at VIBGYOR Model United Nations 2021 which aims to be better and grander than any of the previous ones.
Riding on a strong passion for debate and the ability to adapt to any given situation, as an Executive Board member, I have proudly taken a few strides in the Bangalore Circuit.
With awards at prestigious MUNs like COMUN, GWHMUN, DNMUN to name a few, my four-year experience in the Bangalore Circuit has garnered attention from other cities in India. I am a proud member of the Calcutta MUN Society as well. I also take delight in being the Co-founder of Forefront Media which is a student led organization that collaborates with several schools in India to encourage and enrich writing from a young age.
I expect my delegates to be fully aware of the agenda at hand and be thorough with their research.
Delegates ought to be proactive and adept when it comes to adapting to the demands of the committee. I personally look forward to the viewpoint put forward by the first time MUNners. Above all, our purpose here at VIBGYOR MUN is to help MUNners become better at their craft.
So, here’s looking forward to some fruitful sessions with you!
Chair – EU
Greetings from the EU of VIBGYORMUN 11! It has been 75 years since the birth of a commission that strives to protect peace, combat social exclusion, and offers security and justice without internal borders. Here at the EU, it is your responsibility as its representatives to further its goals and values.
I am a little but mighty 12th grader on my grand voyage of board examinations and JEE. A ghost’s casket who is possessed by insatiable thirst for crime documentaries and legal dramas, I have attended a series of MUNs – VHMUN being the very first. I have also performed as a classical dancer in the last few years, with my performance at Cambodia being the very last.
Along the lines of crime documentaries and legal dramas, if any one of you delegates manage to capture the entire committee’s attention with a few syllables or an array of choices of crafty and out-of-the-box sentences, I must say I will be thoroughly impressed.
With this committee, I hope to bring a fun-filled seminar where everyone stands against the tip of time wanting more of every minute that passes by. I wish for everyone to find undiscovered potential that may lie dormant.
Chair – EU
I am exhilarated to be a Chair of EU in VIBGYOR MUN 11, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to the European Union!
My journey with MUNs began through VHMUN 8 as a delegate – clueless, intimidated, and nervous. Today here I stand, motivated and focused as ever, wanting to lead our committee into the most engaging and productive debates. Like every other student, when I was fascinated with the idea of MUN as a pre-teen, little did I know that it would help me grow as a person while changing the perspective I had towards life.
I am currently a student of National Public School, Bangalore. I remain extremely inclined to liberal arts, and aim to do my Majors in International Relations. The only dream I have is to be an actor and every day I work to turn my dream into reality. If not in MUNs you will find me performing on stage, making artworks or simply binge watching Netflix shows while devouring a slice of chocolate cake. I have also been a professionally trained dancer for over 8 years now.
I am ecstatic to meet everyone and hope that everyone has a memorable and enriching experience! Don’t hesitate to reach out for any queries or help. I will try my best to guide you at each step. I am sure, together we will have the best experience!
