The presidency is returning to Luxembourg, a founding Member State that not only plays joint host to the institutions but, thanks to its pivotal position in the centre of Europe, in fact helped to create the fledgling predecessor of today’s European Union. The Grand Duchy will undoubtedly bring to bear its unique and successful experience both in genuinely integrating itself into Europe, and in integrating Europe within its borders.

    EESC recommendations on Social Enterprise

    Following the event in Strasbourg, the EESC has launched the Social Enterprise Project to identify policy ideas and specific measures that can be taken.

    Throughout the project, the EESC has gathered valuable input from people working in field across Europe, and met with stakeholders at local, regional, national and European level across sectors. There is a width and breadth of knowledge and experiences to be listened to and acted on. The social enterprise community of supporters is clearly expanding, and there appears to be a common view on what the EU institutions' key priorities should be for the coming years if we are to fully unleash the potential for social enterprise in European societies. This stakeholder input is the foundation of this report and has been summarised in the form of recommendations and observations.

    Europe’s Energy Policy: a business perspective for 2030

    Energy is crucial for modern societies; the development of the economy is directly linked to its price and availability.

    Today, Europe is highly dependent on external energy resources; in 2012 90% of its energy was imported. Yet the various political crises throughout the world (Ukraine, Iraq) remind us that this dependence makes Europe very vulnerable.

    In order to minimise the effects of this, Europe must rely on a true energy mix. Diversification, both in terms of geography and energy sources, is crucial.

    Civil Society Prize 2014 : The integration of Roma

    Civil society organisations around Europe work every day – frequently on a voluntary basis – to build a fairer and more inclusive society. At the EU level, the European Economic and Social Committee represents their interests and aims to ensure that their efforts receive the recognition they deserve. With this in mind, the EESC launched its Civil Society Prize eight years ago in order to “reward excellence in civil society initiatives”.

    This year’s prize is aimed at organisations or individuals who have undertaken outstanding projects to improve the economic and social inclusion of Roma people and communities.

    Establishing a European platform to combat undeclared work - Position paper – September 2014

    Undeclared work in Europe undermines the European ideals of the rule of law, security, solidarity, social and fiscal justice, free market competition and the free movement of workers. Therefore, the setting up of a European Platform to combat irregular employment must be welcomed. The elimination of undeclared work in Europe would be a great achievement.

    European immigration policy and relations with other countries Position paper – July 2014

    "Member States cannot face the challenges brought by immigration alone. There is a need for a greater solidarity to ensure that no Member State is facing a disproportionate amount of pressure due to its geographical situation. A common policy on immigration and integration is needed to benefit from migratory fluxes."
    Panagiotis Gkofas, rapporteur on 'European immigration policy and relations with third countries'

    "Europe must manage its immigration policy in collaboration with third countries. European external borders are common borders. Solidarity must be strengthened to welcome new refugees and protect the human rights of immigrants."
    Luis Miguel Pariza Castanos, co-rapporteur on 'European immigration policy and relations with third countries'
