Students from 28 schools in Northern Ireland and Ireland gained first-hand experience of international politics at the seventh annual Mock Council of the European Union in Northern Ireland.

The heated debate - with a focus on migration and digital issues - took place in the Senate Chamber in Parliament Buildings, Stormont.

Organised by the British Council and the European Commission Office in Northern Ireland, the mock council sets out to recreate the environment of a real Council of the European Union meeting. The Council of the European Union is, together with the European Parliament, the main decision-making body of the EU and brings together ministers from each of the 27 member states.
