In February 2004, the EESC adopted several important proposals for stronger and more structured cooperation with European civil society organisations and networks. The Committee decided to set up a Liaison Group to interact with these organisations and networks and designed to be both a liaison body and a structure for political dialogue.
The Liaison Group ensures that the EESC has a coordinated approach towards these organisations and networks, as well as monitoring joint initiatives.
Its setting up is in line with the initiatives taken by the Committee over recent years with the aim of strengthening cooperation with European civil society organisations and therefore, bolstering its role in future as chosen intermediary between the EU institutions and organised civil society.
