European Council Chairs

Anna Lisa Schäfer-Gehrau is a European Law student at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. Due to her academic background, she always enjoys simulations of the European Union. This is especially due to its ability to accommodate technical discussion while maintaining the benefits of a traditional MUN: the negotiating and the heated debating. She hopes to bring accuracy and consensus to this European Council simulation. Aside from that, she always enjoys watching bad movies, so if you have any suggestions please send them her way.


 Dor Gvishi is 27 years old and hails from Tel-Aviv in Israel. He is studying for his master’s degree in diplomacy and the European Union studies program at Tel-Aviv University. He joined the TAUMUN society in 2017 and that gave him a new perspective on worldwide politics and diplomacy. He attended several national and international conferences in Israel and Europe. MUN has changed him – developing his negotiation skills, public speaking, strategy building capabilities and has granted him great research skills. Above all, for him, TAUMUN is much more than a society, it is his second family. He is truly looking forward to our fruitful debate to meet you all, Best of luck.

Karen Sturm is 22 years old and recently handed in her thesis for her Bachelors in European Studies at Maastricht University. She was born and raised in Berlin but also calls Canada her dear home. Karen was introduced to the world of MUN at her first year at university with UNSA Maastricht. Since then she has been a delegate at more than twelve conferences and has chaired in Tel Aviv, Hamburg and EuroMUN. This will be her first time in St Gallen and at this MUN and she is very excited to be part of it. Besides being an MUN-enthusiast, she loves travelling, watching any binge-worthy Netflix show, and also drinking the occasional beer or two
