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, 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.

    The External Relations Section (REX) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is responsible for dialogue between European civil society organisations and their homologues from the countries with which the European Union has formal relations (e.g. under the form of a Free Trade Agreement). Through this dialogue, made possible by a series of bilateral bodies, and through specialized opinions and information reports, the Committee is able to concretely contribute to EU foreign policy.
