The event was held on Oct. 29 at the LAU Byblos campus.Nov. 1, 1993, marks the creation of the European Union, the world's most successful enterprise for spreading peace. Twelve nations ratified the Maastricht Treaty, known as the Treaty on European Union, bringing the EU into existence. There were several attempts to achieve regional integration outside of Europe; however, most of these initiatives did not succeed in attaining what the EU achieved in terms of political and economic cooperation and integration.The EU became a social model bridging unity and diversity, suggesting lessons for other regional groupings and countries that want to reach high levels of integration. The existence of the EU has inspired several interactions on the interregional and educational levels. On the educational level, The Lebanese American University's Outreach and Civic Engagement Unit is implementing the Model EU project supported by the Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development in partnership with the Model European Union in Strasbourg and BETA (Bringing Europeans Together Association), which organizes Model EU conferences in Europe and around the world.
