Policy assessment

The Policy Assessment Unit (PAS) coordinates the EESC's contribution to the evaluations of EU policies and legislation.

The unit has been assigned with introducing the systematic practice of analysis and policy evaluation in the EESC. In July 2016 the unit launched its first evaluations (Information Reports).

The PAS unit develops strategies and methodological guidelines for the implementation of evaluation in close collaboration with the sections, observatories and CCMI.

The EESC has been asked by the European Commission to contribute to the EC's mid-term evaluation of the Erasmus+ programme. In this context, two questionnaires were widely disseminated by the EESC in the member states and four fact-finding missions have been organised. The EESC also held an expert hearing to collect the views of specialised civil society organisations. An information report has been drafted containing the results of this exercise, accompanied by a detailed technical appendix containing important data on the awareness and perception of the programme.
