Udvidelseslandene

EØSU deltager aktivt i EU-udvidelsesprocessen og har udviklet en tostrenget – regional og bilateral – strategi for forbindelserne til civilsamfundsorganisationerne i udvidelseslandene.

På det regionale plan er Opfølgningsudvalget for det vestlige Balkan, som er et permanent, internt EØSU-organ, det vigtigste instrument til koordinering af EØSU's aktiviteter i regionen. Opfølgningsudvalgets arbejde omfatter bl.a. møder i Civilsamfundsforummet for Vestbalkan, der afholdes hvert andet år.

EØSU arbejder desuden bilateralt med landene i det vestlige Balkan og Tyrkiet. EØSU har på baggrund af associeringsaftalerne mellem disse lande og EU skabt tre fælles organer med repræsentanter for civilsamfundet i Tyrkiet, Montenegro og Serbien. Formålet er at involvere civilsamfundsorganisationerne i førtiltrædelses- og tiltrædelsesprocessen. Hvert enkelt organ består af lige mange medlemmer fra EØSU og partnerlandene, og de mødes to gange om året.

EØSU har regelmæssig kontakt og arrangerer fælles aktiviteter med civilsamfundsorganisationerne i de udvidelseslande, hvormed der endnu ikke er oprettet noget fælles civilsamfundsorgan.

EØSU supplerer arbejdet i de blandede organer med udtalelser om førtiltrædelses- og tiltrædelsesprocessen i de enkelte lande samt emner af regional interesse.

EESC

The EESC will keep on advocating for the enlargement process to go on, in an inclusive, transparent and fair manner. Any delay due to the current turmoil in the EU has to be seen as a chance for reaching a better level of preparedness when entering the EU. But for this opportunity to be seized, the EU needs to work side by side with civil society in the region.
