Monitorovací výbor EU-Rusko je interním orgánem EHSV, který se zabývá vztahy s ruskou občanskou společností.
Od 24. února 2022, kdy orgány Ruské federace zahájily válku proti Ukrajině, je svobodná občanská společnost v Rusku s použitím zvláštních zákonů a stupňujících se represí umlčována a mnoho kritiků tohoto režimu bylo nuceno emigrovat.
V současné složité situaci se EHSV rozhodl, že bude nadále ochoten vést dialog s tou částí ruské občanské společnosti, která působí na území EU a s válkou nesouhlasí.
Tento dialog vedl k přínosné výměně informací a názorů na to, jak by měly pokračovat bilaterální vztahy po ukončení války a po návratu svobody a demokracie do této země.
On 30 and 31 March, 100 students and 39 teachers from all 28 EU Member States and the five EU candidate countries (Albania, Northern Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey) met at the EESC in Brussels for “Your Europe, Your Say!” 2017. This year's theme was “Europe @ 60: Where to next?”.
The EESC organised debates with organised civil society in all Member States between 2 September and 2 November 2016. The debates were coordinated by three EESC members ('trios') from the country concerned, often in co-operation with the European Commission (15 debates) or the national Economic and Social Council (7 debates).
On 17-18 March 2016, students from schools in all 28 EU Member States and, for the first time, from the 5 EU candidate countries (Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey) met at the EESC in Brussels for Your Europe, Your Say!. They came to debate an issue that has been one of the most important topics on the European political agenda for some time: migration and integration. The key question for this year’s event was “How can we better integrate migrants and refugees in our societies?”.
The European Union: how does it work? Can you influence decisions? Do you know how the policies that affect your life are made?
What if some of the EU’s complicated procedures were turned into a game – fun to play but challenging as well – that you could download onto your smartphone, tablet or laptop?
The study was conducted with the aim of analysing feasibility of a supply chain, to capitalise on unsold seafood products for distribution to deprived people
The European Economic and Social Committee has been an ardent supporter of the Eastern Partnership from the very outset and the EESC's Employers' Group has continually emphasised the need to strengthen the partnership's economic dimension. An appropriate tool was needed to enable the representatives of employers, entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises from the EU and its partner countries to meet and openly assess the process of convergence with the European acquis and its impact on the economic situation.
