Ón gcéad choinbhinsiún, mar atá, Coinbhinsiún Lomé, (1975) go dtí Comhaontú Cotonou (2000-2021), is le Comhpháirtíochtaí AE-ACC a rialaíodh an caidreamh idir an tAontas agus 79 dtír de Ghrúpa na Stát san Afraic, i Muir Chairib agus san Aigéan Ciúin (ACC), ar a dtugtar Eagraíocht na Stát san Afraic, i Muir Chairib agus san Aigéan Ciúin (ESACC) anois.

Le linn na tréimhse sin, throid CESE, i gcomhpháirt le sochaí shibhialta ACC, ar son aitheantas a thabhairt don ról ríthábhachtach atá ag oibreoirí neamhstáit sa phróiseas forbartha go dtí gur baineadh an méid sin amach le Comhaontú Cotonou, lenar tugadh sainordú do CESE gníomhaíochtaí agus comhairliúcháin a eagrú le “grúpaí sainleasa eacnamaíocha agus sóisialta ACC-AE ” d’fhonn tuairimí na sochaí sibhialta eagraithe a bhailiú agus guth a thabhairt di. Is é an aidhm atá leis ná malartuithe a chothú agus moltaí a dhéanamh maidir le saincheisteanna agus beartais a bhaineann le caidreamh ACC-AE agus cuirtear na moltaí sin faoi bhráid cheannairí AE agus ACC go hoifigiúil tráth níos faide anonn.

Go praiticiúil, cuirtear gníomhaíochtaí CESE a bhaineann le caidreamh AE-ESACCi gcrích, go príomha, faoi threoir Choiste Leantach cuimsitheach ACC-AE ar a bhfuil comhaltaí ó CESE agus toscairí a dhéanann ionadaíocht thar ceann ghrúpaí sainleasa eacnamaíocha agus sóisialta ACC. 

Tá teagmháil rialta á cothú ag Coiste Leantach ACC-AE le hionadaithe na sochaí sibhialta sna tíortha ACC ar leibhéil éagsúla de thoradh na nithe seo a leanas:

  • Cruinnithe rialta de Coiste Leantach ACC-AE,
  • Seimineáir réigiúnacha i dtíortha ACC, lena gcuirtear fóram ar fáil chun ábhair sainleasa choitinn a phlé le hionadaithe na sochaí sibhialta i réigiúin mhalartacha,
  • Cruinnithe Ginearálta tríbhliantúla de ghrúpaí sainleasa eacnamaíocha agus sóisialta ACC-AE sa Bhruiséil.

Tá teagmháil rialta ag CESE le hionadaithe ó ghrúpaí sainleasa eacnamaíocha agus sóisialta an Aontais Afracaigh, faoi chuimsiú straitéis chomhpháirteach AE-na hAfraice. Go háirithe, reáchtálann CESE cruinnithe bliantúla leis an líonra de Gheallsealbhóirí Eacnamaíocha agus Sóisialta AE-na hAfraice. 

Tá teagmháil rialta á cothú ag CESE le Tionól Parlaiminteach Comhpháirteach ACC-AE le roinnt mhaith blianta anuas trí thuarascáil ar a ghníomhaíochtaí a chur i láthair ag seisiúin an Tionóil Iomlánaigh.

Chomh maith leis sin, tá CESE i ndlúth-theagmháil le heagraíochtaí idirnáisiúnta, mar atá eagraíochtaí fostóirí, eagraíochtaí oibrithe, eagraíochtaí feirmeoirí, eagraíochtaí comharchumann agus eagraíochtaí tomhaltóirí. Ainmníonn na heagraíochtaí sin na hionadaithe ó thíortha ACC a gheobhaidh cuireadh chuig na cruinnithe arna reáchtáil ag CESE, lena n-áirítear Coiste Leantach ACC-AE.

The social economy is prominent in everyday life and in the productive activity of large regions of the world and makes a decisive contribution to improving the living and working conditions of millions of people. However, the social economy is not specifically recognised as a sector in the EU development cooperation programmes.One of the principal aims of the opinion is that the external dimension of the EU’s programmes and initiatives should establish support measures specifically targeted at boosting businesses and organisations in the social economy.
