Civil society organisations (CSOs) play an important role in fostering participatory democracy and active citizenship in Europe and beyond; EU funding is paramount to support this work. The goal of this EESC hearing is to present working solutions and come up with recommendations for revised financial regulations and the future Multiannual Financial Framework after 2020 that would enable better civil dialogue and easier and transparent access to resources.
This seminar, co-organised by the EESC and Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), aims at discussing the current state of affairs and next steps on the EU policy agenda in the field of labour migration and mobility policy. It will address the main challenges characterizing migration and mobility for employment purposes. The “attractiveness” of the EU’s labour migration policy will be looked at especially, in its current shape and ways to foster it in the future.
