The EU-Montenegro Joint Consultative Committee

The EU-Montenegro Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) is a civil society platform established between the EESC and civil society in Montenegro (social partners and other civil society organisations). The JCC's mandate comes from Decision No 1/2011 of the EU – Montenegro Stabilisation and Association Council of 20 June 2011, amending Decision No 1/2010 adopting the rules of procedure of the Stabilisation and Association Council. The Civil Society JCC complements, with a civil society point of view, the EU institutional framework related to the Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the EU and Montenegro. The Civil Society Joint Consultative Committee comprises members from each side.

The JCC allows civil society organisations from both sides to monitor the path of Montenegro towards the EU, and to adopt recommendations for the attention of the government of Montenegro and the EU institutions.
