The EESC issues between 160 and 190 opinions and information reports a year.
It also organises several annual initiatives and events with a focus on civil society and citizens’ participation such as the Civil Society Prize, the Civil Society Days, the Your Europe, Your Say youth plenary and the ECI Day.
The EESC brings together representatives from all areas of organised civil society, who give their independent advice on EU policies and legislation. The EESC's326 Members are organised into three groups: Employers, Workers and Various Interests.
The EESC has six sections, specialising in concrete topics of relevance to the citizens of the European Union, ranging from social to economic affairs, energy, environment, external relations or the internal market.
The Banking Union was identified by the Council as one of the pillars to create a genuine Economic and Monetary Union in 2012. Progress has been achieved by the creation of the Single Supervisory Mechanism, the Single Resolution Mechanism, and the proposal to create the European Deposit Insurance Scheme.
However, the Banking Union is still incomplete. In response, the Eurogroup published a statement, in June 2022, inviting the European Commission to propose a reform to strengthen the bank crisis management and deposit scheme (CMDI) framework, that has been recently published.
The aim of this hearing is to discuss on the current framework on resolution and insolvency, supervision, and bank deposit insurance scheme, and its reform.
The event is organised on 23.05.2023 starting at 10:00 and is accessible via webstream. No registration is needed.
