    The EESC and the Mediterranean
    The events of the «Arab Spring» and the political, social and economic changes that have resulted from them are today the main theme of relations between the European Union and the Mediterranean partner countries, and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. The EESC’s mission both in the past and the present has been to involve socio-economic players and other civil society representatives in policymaking in the region. The EESC firmly believes that this is vital for the overall success of policies and is fully committed to developing the civil society dimension of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.

    The EESC and Latin America
    Relations between the EESC and Latin America have represented an important aspect of the work of the Section for External Relations for more than 10 years. The EESC’s work with Latin America is pursued within the framework of the EU’s policies regarding the region. In practical terms, the EU-Latin America-Caribbean Bi-regional Strategic Partnership, unveiled by the European Commission in 2006, and the negotiations for Association Agreements with Central America, Colombia, Peru, Mercosur and the EU-Brazil Strategic Partnership, have prompted a parallel increase in work by organised civil society on both sides.

By collecting one million signatures across Europe, they can call upon the European Commission to propose or change European legislation. The European Economic and Social Committee has been an advocate of citizens’ rights to participate since the beginning of the European project.

    Immigration and integration - EESC Position Paper
    “Integration is a reality which migrants live at the workplace, at school, at the bus stop or the sports club. Because it is part of everyday life, civil society – which the EESC represents – has a vital role to play in promoting integration. This has been clearly recognised both by European institutions and civil society organisations which concretely consider the Committee as a bridge between the two of them.” Luis Miguel Pariza Castaños, President of the Immigration and Integration (IMI) Standing Group
