European Economic and Social Committee

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), representing the economic and social interests of organised civil society in the European Union (EU), has strongly and consistently supported the enlargement of the European Union to the six Western Balkans countries provided they fulfil all the necessary criteria for membership. 

As the role and the voice of the civil society are vital for making any tangible progress on issues and values at the very core of the European Union, the EESC made the present declaration as its contribution to the political leaders participating to the Western Balkans Summit on 6 May 2020.

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and its study group on the inclusion of the Roma join the call of Members from EU institutions as well as civil society organisations to raise concern over the worsening situation of marginalized communities, amongst them the Roma, during this difficult and uncertain period.  We praise the volunteers and employees of Roma organisations for the invaluable work they are carrying out to continue assisting the Roma community in this challenging time, during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Declaration
The EESC and its study group on the inclusion of the Roma join the call of Members from EU institutions as well as civil society organisations to raise concern over the worsening situation of marginalized communities. We praise the volunteers and employees of Roma organisations for the invaluable work they are carrying out to continue assisting their community during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Yet their efforts cannot replace the governments' responsibilities for taking care of the whole population of their countries, including the Roma community.

Luca Jahier, EESC President

Vor der Abstimmung im Europäischen Parlament über eine aussagekräftige Entschließung, die den Ton für das Treffen der Staats- und Regierungschefs kommende Woche vorgibt, und gestützt auf das solide Maßnahmenpaket, das die Eurogruppe letzte Woche zur Unterstützung der europäischen Wirtschaft geschnürt hat, bin ich zuversichtlich, dass die EU heute mehr denn je die Chance und auch die Verpflichtung hat, wie Phönix aus der Asche wiederaufzuerstehen.

Statement by
Luca Jahier, EESC President and José Antonio Moreno Díaz, President of the Group on Fundamental Rights and the Rule of Law (FRRL)

Durch die in Reaktion auf die COVID-19-Krise getroffenen Maßnahmen wurde eine Reihe von Grundrechten negativ beeinflusst. Aufgrund der unvermeidbaren Ausgangsbeschränkungen wurden nicht nur unser Recht auf Freizügigkeit und unsere grenzüberschreitende Reisefreiheit eingeschränkt, sondern auch die Vereinigungs- und Versammlungsfreiheit sowiedurch Tracking-Systeme – das Recht auf Schutz der Privatsphäre.

Statement by
Luca Jahier, EESC President and Dilyana Slavova, President of the REX Section

The CODIV-19 is forcing us apart with lockdowns, but at the same showing us that we must stick together if we want to defeat the pandemic. We must react jointly and swiftly to address this unexpected crisis both in Europe and in other regions of the world, because the virus knows no borders, skin colors or social status.

Declaration by
the European Economic and Social Committee

For an urgent and comprehensive European economic recovery plan

The COVID-19 crisis represents first of all a human health emergency, secondly a severe economic and social threat and thirdly a potential challenge for democratic institutions.

Facing this crisis – one of the worst of its history – the EU must be guided by the principle of being considered a community of common destiny. Through this principle, the EESC recalls that it is possible to adopt and coordinate common and solidarity measures to counter the negative health, economic and social effects of the COVID-19 crisis.

Statement by
Luca Jahier, EESC President

Ich war schon immer stolz darauf, Europäer zu sein, heute mehr denn je. Dennoch birgt die derzeitige Haltung der Staats- und Regierungschefs in Verbindung mit den anhaltenden Spaltungen aufgrund des Virus eine tödliche Gefahrnicht nur für die Europäische Union, sondern auch für unsere Fähigkeit, uns von dieser beispiellosen systemischen und symmetrischen Krise zu erholen.
