Idapoolsed naaberriigid

This page is also available in:

Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee Euroopa idapoolseid naaberriike puudutav tegevus hõlmab Armeeniat, Aserbaidžaani, Gruusiat, Moldovat, Ukrainat ja Valgevenet. Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee põhieesmärk idapoolseid naaberriike puudutavas tegevuses on tõhustada suhteid kodanikuühiskonna organisatsioonidega piirkonnas ja kaasata neid dialoogi nii nende riikide poliitikakujundajate kui ka ELi organiseeritud kodanikuühiskonnaga.

Peamised koostöömehhanismid Gruusia, Moldova ja Ukrainaga on kodanikuühiskonna platvormid, mis täiendavad ELi ja nende riikide assotsieerimislepingute raames olemas olevaid poliitilisi organeid. Platvormid võimaldavad nii ELi kui ka partnerriigi kodanikuühiskonna organisatsioonidel jälgida lepingu rakendamist, esitades oma soovitusi asjaomastele asutustele.

ELi poolel hõlmavad platvormid Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee liikmeid ning suurte Euroopa kodanikuühiskonna võrgustike liikmeid. Partnerriigi poolel on esindatud mitmesugused kodanikuühiskonna organisatsioonid. Platvormi liikmeskonnas on tasakaalustatult esindatud kõik huvirühmad (tööandjate organisatsioonid, ametiühingud ja eri elualade huvirühmad).

Idapoolsete naaberriikide järelevalvekomitee loodi 2004. aastal Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee juures spetsiaalse organina, mis vastutab suhete eest kodanikuühiskonnaga idapoolsetes naaberriikides. Järelevalvekomitee kohtub tavaliselt neli korda aastas ja selle liikmed osalevad aktiivselt idapartnerluse tegevuses, nagu idapartnerluse mitmepoolsed platvormid ja idapartnerluse kodanikuühiskonna foorum.
