    The social economy in the European Union

    Undoubtedly, the social economy is a sector which makes a significant contribution to employment creation, sustainable growth and to a fairer income and wealth distribution. It is a sector which is able to combine profi tability with social inclusion and democratic systems of governance, working alongside the public and private sectors in matching services to needs. Crucially, it is a sector which has weathered the economic crisis much better that others and is increasingly gaining recognition at the European level.

    A citizens-orientated approach to the Single Market
    The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) adopted in February 2012 an opinion on “A people-orientated, grassroots approach to the Single Market”. In parallel, the EFTA Consultative Committee (EFTA CC) adopted an opinion on “A citizen’s approach to the Single Market” which focuses on the need to promote the awareness and confidence of workers, business and consumers in the Single Market. The EFTA CC and the SMO stressed the importance of a coordinated effort by all 30 EEA States to increase citizens’ participation in the Single Market.

    Obstacles to the European Single Market
    After 20 years of existence, the Single Market is still a work in progress. While a number of barriers have been abolished, new ones have appeared. It is therefore important to track developments in this area, take stock of the remaining obstacles and set up a road map for the Single Market to operate smoothly in the interest of all.

    Taking stock of the recommendations of the European Economic and Social Committee on Single Market policies

    The aim of this document is to highlight the contribution of Europe’s civil society organisations represented at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on the Single Market debate. The EESC has been closely following the Single Market from the civil society perspective and set up its Single Market Observatory (SMO) in 1994 to this effect. This summary of the Committee's opinions related to Single Market policies is based on the input from the Monti, Grech and Herzog reports and allows for a global vision of civil society's pluralist, fact-based contribution to shaping Europe's future.

    The CCMI: a decade of industrial change in Europe
    This book is a tribute to 10 years of work by the CCMI to promote constructive industrial change. It outlines the history of the Commission and explains how it has evolved in response to new challenges, often through the eyes of those most closely involved. But more importantly, through its account of the conference proceedings, it also looks forward and charts the many ideas and proposals for the future that emerged from the day’s discussions.

    Civil society in the southern Mediterranean - EESC Position Paper
    «In the Euro-Mediterranean region, 2012 and beyond will be about dealing with realities on the ground and turning the political will for transition into positive results for the people. We need to help them with measures that are directly relevant to the challenges they are facing. This has led the EESC to explore new avenues to ensure that local civil society can make its voice heard and respected in decision-making at national level and in the countries’ relations with the EU.» Dimitris Dimitriadis, president of the EESC Euromed Follow-Up Committee
