The purpose of this report is to assess the Open Doors Day at the European Economic and Social Committee. The report comprises: a description and analysis of the 2014 event, recommendations for future editions and a presentation of the opportunities the Open Doors Day provides the Committee.
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.
