Die Beziehungen des EWSA zu den Organisationen der Zivilgesellschaft in Russland richten sich nach den fünf Grundsätzen für die Beziehungen zwischen der EU und Russland, die von den Außenministern der EU und der Hohen Vertreterin der Union für Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik vereinbart wurden. Einer dieser Grundsätze lautet „Förderung der persönlichen Kontakte“.

Der Dialog und der Erfahrungsaustausch zwischen den Vertretern der Zivilgesellschaft der EU und Russlands tragen erheblich zur laufenden Umsetzung der Strategischen Partnerschaft EU-Russland bei. Der EWSA verfolgt bei seinen Beziehungen zur russischen Zivilgesellschaft eine Doppelstrategie, um ein möglichst breites Spektrum von Vertretern der organisierten Zivilgesellschaft anzusprechen. Zum einen unterhält er Beziehungen zur Gesellschaftskammer der Russischen Föderation, seinem offiziellen russischen Gegenstück, und richtet unter anderem jährliche gemeinsame Seminare zu Themen von gemeinsamem Interesse der Zivilgesellschaft beider Seiten aus. Zum anderen arbeitet er mit Forum der Zivilgesellschaft EU-Russland zusammen, das verschiedene Organisationen der Zivilgesellschaft an einen Tisch bringt.

Der Begleitausschuss EU-Russland ist ein internes Arbeitsorgan des EWSA, das als Lenkungsgruppe fungiert und dafür zuständig ist, die Beziehungen zur Zivilgesellschaft in Russland aufzubauen und zu pflegen sowie Sitzungen und gemeinsame Seminare mit der russischen Zivilgesellschaft zu veranstalten.

The European Economic and Social Committee and the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation held their seventh joint seminar in Brussels on 27 September 2017. Both sides highlighted that civil society has an instrumental role to play in contributing to sustainable economic, social and cultural development, democracy and human rights, and fostering people-to-people contacts – one of the guiding principles underpinning the EU's engagement with Russia.

Evictions remain a serious problem across Europe and the input session will draw the attention to similarities between evictions in different kind of countries.

The session will help raise awareness of the issues, and allow for interchange between Roma organizations across Europe and is part of the continuous work of the EESC to bring attention to Roma issues. This will also be an opportunity for the EESC to deepen its work on evictions, following the showing of a film on Roma evictions in Italy ("River Memories") followed by a debate on this issue.

When it comes to Roma issues, the gender dimension has long been neglected. However, women have an essential role in Roma society and ensuring their participation is a key element in improving their situation. Romani women across Europe often face discrimination on multiple fronts: racism for being Roma, as well as gender discrimination.

It is not possible to speak about the inclusion of Roma if half of their community has little or no opportunity to express their needs and make their voice heard. Roma inclusion policy needs Roma women activists and advocates. The gender dimension can also play an important role in the success of National Roma Integration Strategies (NRISs).
