Az EU és a déli szomszédai közötti kapcsolatok képezik egyik fő prioritásunkat. Munkánk számos különféle területet ölel fel – ilyen például a civil társadalom politikai és civil párbeszédben való részvétele, a demokratikus átmenet, a fiatalok foglalkoztatása, a fenntartható fejlődés, a mobilitás és a bevándorlás, a kereskedelem, a megújuló energia és a vállalkozásfejlesztés.

Az EGSZB 1995 óta dolgozik ezeken a kérdéseken. A régióban 2010-ben bekövetkezett változásokat követően célkitűzéseinket a változásokhoz igazítottuk, abból a célból, hogy:

  • támogassuk az átalakulóban lévő országok civil társadalmi szervezeteit. Ez a támogatás különösen a szakszervezeteket és a munkáltatói szervezeteket, valamint a nők, a fiatalok és a gazdálkodók egyesületeit célozza;
  • kétoldalú kapcsolatokat tartsunk fenn a régióban működő nemzeti gazdasági és szociális tanácsokkal, valamint hogy közreműködjünk abban, hogy a déli partnerországokban megteremtődjenek a civil társadalom politikai párbeszédbe történő bevonásának feltételei;
  • véleményeket és közös jelentéseket bocsássunk ki a régió fő politikai kihívásairól;
  • rendszeres találkozókat tartsunk az európai intézményekkel és nemzetközi szervezetekkel az egész régió civil társadalmát érintő szakpolitikák megvitatása érdekében;
  • éves csúcstalálkozót szervezzünk a gazdasági és szociális tanácsok és hasonló intézmények számára, amelyen a régió fő kihívásait érintő fontos szakpolitikai ajánlásokat terjesztenek a nemzeti kormányok és az EU politikai döntéshozói elé.
