    Georges Dassis at the European Parliament Conference of Committee Chairs

    On 15 December 2015, the President of the Committee took part in the European Parliament Conference of Committee Chairs held in Strasbourg.

    In his speech, Mr Dassis set out the EESC's positions on migration and asylum, stressing the prominent role of civil society. Turning to sustainable development and climate change, he spoke about the need for a new governance model in order to implement the UN 2030 Agenda and the Paris Protocol. 

    The EESC president also stressed the need to "parliamentarise" Economic and Monetary Union, which should listen more to civil society, and called for interinstitutional cooperation to introduce a social protocol paving the way for a levelling up of the Member States' social systems.

    Lastly, Mr Dassis emphasised that the Parliament and Committee constituted the EU's "democratic core" and that cooperation between them was crucial to strengthening participatory democracy and democracy in general.
