All students are divided into groups and each group consists of teams representing each federating unit for a single topic. The Model CCI participants are asked to meet up with the other students that represent the same government. In teams they analyze the policies, problems and opinion of the government. Smart participants meet up well in advance and develop a strategy for the debate. The students are recommended to get as much information as possible about the topic from the websites of the relevant ministries, news-channels or professional literature beforehand.
