EUROMED

Las relaciones entre la UE y sus países vecinos meridionales constituyen una de nuestras prioridades. Nuestra labor cubre una amplia variedad de ámbitos, como la participación de la sociedad civil en el diálogo político y social, la transición democrática, el empleo juvenil, el desarrollo sostenible, la movilidad y la inmigración, el comercio, la energía renovable y el desarrollo empresarial.

El CESE ha trabajado en estas cuestiones desde 1995. Como consecuencia de los cambios en la región en 2010, hemos ajustado adecuadamente nuestros objetivos, encaminados hacia:

  • el apoyo a las organizaciones de la sociedad civil en los países inmersos en una transición, que se dirige, en particular, a las organizaciones sindicales y patronales, así como a las asociaciones de mujeres, juveniles y de agricultores;
  • el mantenimiento de relaciones bilaterales con los consejos económicos y sociales nacionales en la región y trabajar para crear las condiciones necesarias para la inclusión de la sociedad civil en el diálogo político de los países asociados vecinos meridionales;
  • la elaboración de dictámenes e informes conjuntos sobre los retos políticos fundamentales a los que se enfrenta la región;
  • la celebración de reuniones periódicas con las instituciones europeas y otras organizaciones internacionales para debatir sobre las políticas que afectan a la sociedad civil en la región;
  • la organización de una cumbre anual para los consejos económicos y sociales y otras instituciones similares, en la que se presentan recomendaciones políticas fundamentales sobre los retos más importantes a los que se enfrenta la región ante los responsables políticos de los Gobiernos nacionales y de la UE.

The information report will seek to take a holistic approach to situation of young people in the north and south of the region, looking not just at the employment market but at wider trends amongst young people also outside of work, their self-perception, their political and social outlook on the future, their living arrangements, their view of their parents' generation and other older generations, as well as their view of the region and its role in a globalised world.

The exploratory opinion is being drawn up at the request of the Greek Presidency of the European Union. Immigration-related issues remain a key challenge for the European Union and its Member States with a comprehensive and common strategy at EU level remaining elusive, in spite of the continued pressures that are being felt on the EU's borders.

The opinion will set out civil society's perspective on the dual challenge which EU Member States face in dealing with recent waves of immigrants and at the same time fulfilling - or in some cases failing to fulfil - their duty in guaranteeing immigrants' human rights, be it in detention or whilst on high seas. This issue is particularly topical since the European Commission and European Court of Justice are coming increasingly under pressure to act against Member States that fail to meet EU rules.

This opinion is the EESC's key response to the events in the Euromed region. It provides a thorough analysis of the EU's past failings and the lessons which need to be drawn from them, the most urgent needs facing civil society in the current transition phase, and the longer term perspectives for civil society in the region. The opinion also responds to the two joint communications issued by the European Commission and EEAS on the EU's new Euromed policy, calling for close cooperation between the EU institutions in the region

The opinion examines what has become a key sector in the Euromed region. The uprisings in the Euromed region, besides putting the spotlight on the abuses of autocratic dictators, have also drawn attention to the urgent need for economic and social development, especially in rural areas. Food insecurity and high food prices are set to remain a problem in the region.
