Teaching materials

On this webpage, we have collected all the material relevant for pupils, students and teachers.


We have launched 6 EU – kort fortalt (The EU briefly explained) videos providing pupils in mainly high schools (Ungdomsskole and Videregående) with background information about the EU. The videos are in Norwegian (with optional English subtitles), and last from 3- 6 minutes each. You will find them here:


In the podcast series at the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCoE) at the University of Agder in Norway we delve into topics related to an increasingly differentiated Europe in a Post-Brexit world. The podcast episodes are aimed at an audience who has an interest in the dynamics of the European Union and wants to learn more about the inner workings of this supranational organisation.

Simulation Game

We have developed a simulation game teachers they can use in their high school classes. It it is called “The Svalbard Treaty in a New Century – Simulating the making of international agreements in times of crisis”.

This simulation game is situated in the context of an intensifying geopolitical contest in the Arctic. In recent years, a growing number of states and international organisations have developed a vested interest and increased their engagement in the region. This simulation game will look into the escalated dispute between Norway and the EU. Changes in the maritime fauna, such as the advent of the snow crab, has generated new economic opportunities and thus incited the interest of states active in fishery. For a detailed explanation of the thematic background, please see the Guide for Educators

The complete set below is both in Norwegian and English and consist of a (i) A guide for educators (ii) Latvia, Russia, Norway, United Kingdom, European Commission which takes part in the negotiations, and (III) signes for doors and table cards.
