The EESC and the Western Balkans

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has developed a dual approach, regional and bilateral, for its relations with civil society organizations (CSOs) of the Western Balkans. Both are linked by common global objectives, which are:

° to contribute to the consolidation of democracy and the future
accession to the EU;
° to foster both civil and social dialogue:
- by the development of a culture of dialogue between the
authorities and the CSOs and among the CSOs themselves;
- by the creation of transparent and efficient institutional
frameworks for civil and social dialogue;
- by promoting the setting-up of adequate legal environments for
the activities of the CSOs;
° to strengthen civil society networks;
° to increase exchange of experiences and best practices
