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 event gathered all main national social partners (business federations and trade unions from the 28 Member States) for a full-day debate on the opportunities and challenges of TTIP for the social partners. The meeting allowed for discussion on concrete topics via plenary sessions and parallel panels. The overall objective of the conference was to inform social partners at the national level about the different aspects of TTIP, to promote a balanced exchange of views and experiences between these different national groups aimed at reaching some common understanding on the TTIP and its repercussions.

In March 2014 the 1st meeting of the EU-Africa economic and social interest groups network took place in Brussels. Following negotiations with the EESC, this meeting was funded by the Commission's DG DEVCO with the main objective of introducing an 'organised civil society pillar' into the Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES). The network was kicked off just in time to offer input to the Africa-EU Summit of April 2014.

The EESC has an interest to keep this network alive in order to contribute and follow up into the JAES from the perspective of organised civil society. Politically the best timing for organising meetings of this network is ahead of relevant summits between EU and African heads of state and/or government.
