De østlige nabolande

This page is also available in

EØSU's aktiviteter i forhold til nabolandene i øst vedrører Armenien, Aserbajdsjan, Hviderusland, Georgien, Moldova og Ukraine. EØSU's vigtigste opgave er her at skabe bedre forbindelser til civilsamfundsorganisationerne i regionen og inddrage dem i en dialog med både de nationale politiske beslutningstagere og EU's civilsamfundsorganisationer.

De vigtigste samarbejdsmekanismer med Georgien, Moldova og Ukraine er civilsamfundsplatformene (tag to all three), som supplerer de politiske organer, der findes inden for rammerne af EU's associeringsaftaler med de tre lande. Via platformene har civilsamfundsorganisationer i såvel EU som partnerlandene mulighed for at overvåge gennemførelsen og formulere anbefalinger til de relevante myndigheder.

På EU-siden består platformene af medlemmer fra EØSU og repræsentanter for større europæiske civilsamfundsnetværk. Partnerskabslandene er repræsenteret i platformene ved en lang række forskellige civilsamfundsorganisationer. Sammensætningen af platformene afspejler en ligelig repræsentation af alle interessegrupper (arbejdsgiverorganisationer, fagforeninger og andre interessegrupper).

I EØSU blev Opfølgningsudvalget for EU's nabolande i øst oprettet i 2004 netop med henblik på at varetage forbindelserne med civilsamfundet i nabolandene i øst. Opfølgningsudvalget holder som regel fire møder om året og medlemmerne deltager aktivt i aktiviteterne i østpartnerskabet, bl.a. de multilaterale platforme og civilsamfundsforummet.

Gender Equality on the Labour Market - Mr Adamczyk, EESC

8 pages

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.

The EU is highly dependent on energy resources. More than a half of EU energy consumption is linked to imports. Increasing instability in the Middle East together with the deterioration of EU-Russia relations mean that energy security will remain at the top of the EU's agenda in the coming years. How can we achieve a true energy union? How can interconnectivity be increased between Member States? What should the ideal energy mix look like and how can energy efficiency be increased within the EU? The publication summarises the debate that seeks answers to these questions.

Organisation: 

The EESC believes that Northern Dimension cooperation should not only comprise actors from governmental and regional levels but it should also involve business organisations, trade unions and non-governmental organisations. Civil society is an important Northern Dimension actor: the role of civil society organisations in the implementation of the different projects is essential.
