Communication students have a discussion with deputies of the European Parliament (0)
Students of the Faculty of Communication of Turiba University together with students from other universities attended a seminar organized by the bureau of the European Parliament on important political debates related to the situation in the European Union. The seminar was held at the European Union house in Riga. The host of the discussion was DELFI editor Filips Lastovskis.
Ieva Petersone, 1st year student of the professional bachelor’s study program "International Communication Management" of the Faculty of Communication, believes: "It was a great experience to take part in such an event. Before the seminar we each had to go through a speech by Zans Klods Junkers in Strasbourg and then we had to answer to questions. We were divided into three teams and discussed the answers to the questions, by agreeing on a common denominator. Each enlightened and argued their opinion, we discussed the speech of Junkers and how it affects Latvia. Roberts Zile and Artis Pabriks- the deputies of the European Parliament were also at the seminar. What they told us made it possible to understand the real situation regarding the intensity and atmosphere of work in Strasbourg".
Zane Orlovska, 2nd year student of the professional bachelor's study program “International Communication Management”, says: "I am delighted about every minute what I spent on listening to report by Žans Klods Junkers and debate at the plenary session of the European Parliament on 12th of September so I could attend and participate in the seminar at the European Union house on 14th of September . It was an invaluable experience, I could not only express my views and find out answers to questions which I am interested at, but also meet the deputies of the European Parliament: Artis Pabriks and Roberts Zile. Watching the behavior of deputies and discussion moderator Filips Lastovskis infront of the public, I gained additional knowledge related to international communication management ''.
