L-għan ewlieni tal-KESE fir-rigward tal-Ġirien tal-Ewropa tal-Lvant huwa li jsaħħaħ ir-relazzjonijiet mal-organizzazzjonijiet tas-soċjetà ċivili fir-reġjun u li jinvolvihom fi djalogu kemm ma’ dawk li jfasslu l-politika nazzjonali kif ukoll mas-soċjetà ċivili organizzata tal-UE.
Il-mekkaniżmi ta’ kooperazzjoni ewlenin mal-Georgia, il-Moldova u l-Ukrajna huma l-Pjattaformi tas-Soċjetà Ċivili li jikkomplementaw il-korpi politiċi eżistenti fi ħdan il-qafas tal-Ftehimiet ta’ Assoċjazzjoni tal-UE ma’ dawn il-pajjiżi. Il-Pjattaformi jippermettu lill-organizzazzjonijiet tas-soċjetà ċivili kemm tal-UE kif ukoll tal-pajjiż imsieħeb biex jimmonitorjaw il-proċess ta’ implimentazzjoni u jħejju r-rakkomandazzjonijiet tagħhom lill-awtoritajiet rilevanti.
Min-naħa tal-UE, dawn il-Pjattaformi jinkludi membri tal-KESE kif ukoll rappreżentanti tan-networks Ewropej kbar tas-soċjetà ċivili. Min-naħa tal-pajjiżi msieħba, dawn jirrappreżentaw firxa wiesgħa ta’ organizzazzjonijiet tas-soċjetà ċivili. Is-sħubija tal-Pjattaformi hija bbażata fuq rappreżentazzjoni bbilanċjata tal-gruppi interessati kollha (l-organizzazzjonijiet ta’ min iħaddem, it-trade unions u gruppi ta’ interessi varji).
