Odnosi između EU-a i njegovih južnih susjeda jedan su od naših prioriteta. Naš rad obuhvaća širok raspon područja, kao što je sudjelovanje civilnog društva u političkom i građanskom dijalogu, demokratska tranzicija, zapošljavanje mladih, održivi razvoj, mobilnost i migracija, trgovina, energija iz obnovljivih izvora i razvoj poslovanja.

EGSO radi na tim temama od 1995. godine. Nakon promjena u regiji 2010. godine prilagodili smo svoje ciljeve na odgovarajući način kako bismo:

  • pružali potporu organizacijama civilnog društva u zemljama u tranziciji. Takva je potpora osobito usmjerena na sindikate i organizacije poslodavaca te udruge žena, mladih i poljoprivrednika;
  • održavali bilateralne odnose s nacionalnim gospodarskim i socijalnim vijećima u regiji te radili na stvaranju uvjeta za uključivanje civilnog društva u politički dijalog u južnim partnerskim zemljama;
  • izrađivali mišljenja i/ili zajednička izvješća o ključnim političkim izazovima s kojima se regija suočava;
  • održavali redovite sastanke s europskim institucijama i međunarodnim organizacijama na kojima se raspravlja o politikama u vezi s civilnim društvom diljem regije;
  • organizirali godišnji sastanak na vrhu gospodarskih i socijalnih vijeća te sličnih institucija na kojemu se tvorcima politika iz nacionalnih vlada i EU-a predstavljaju ključne političke preporuke o glavnim izazovima u regiji.
