ES un Krievijas koordinācijas komiteja ir EESK iekšējā struktūra, kas atbild par attiecībām ar Krievijas pilsonisko sabiedrību.

Kopš Krievijas Federācijas varas iestādes 2022. gada 24. februārī sāka karu pret Ukrainu, brīva pilsoniskā sabiedrība Krievijā ir apklusināta ar īpašiem likumiem un pieaugošām represijām, savukārt daudzi režīma kritiķi ir bijuši spiesti doties trimdā.

Pašreizējos grūtajos apstākļos EESK ir nolēmusi saglabāt iespējas dialogam ar to Krievijas pilsoniskās sabiedrības daļu, kas iestājas pret karu un atrodas ES teritorijā.

Tas ir devis iespēju auglīgai informācijas un viedokļu apmaiņai par to, kā divpusējām attiecībām būtu jāturpinās pēc kara beigām, un par brīvības un demokrātijas atjaunošanu valstī.

  • Civil society for an open democratic debate

    The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is working on a project on disinformation to be implemented with the help of civil society. Disinformation typically spreads among the population, often horizontally, so that the best way to tackle the problem is not in a top-down approach, but in citizens’ reflection and direct engagement. This is where organized civil society can play a crucial role.

    Anti-gypsyism is an important barrier to the effective implementation of the framework and national integration strategies, and the hearing wants to shed light on possible responses to this cross-cutting problem.

A hearing on anti-gypsyism and other forms of racism and xenophobia will allow exchanging best practices on how to combat these phenomena.
