The EESC is an EU advisory body for EU institutions, the only non-political Brussels-based body participating in policy-making. Our first objective is to make the voice of organised civil society heard by the other EU institutions. Our role is to make recommendations and give advice the European Commission, but also to the EU Council, and to the European Parliament. Some 200 opinions are adopted every year by the EESC, mainly on economic and social affairs.
