Il-Kumitat ta' Segwitu UE-Russja huwa l-korp intern tal-KESE li huwa responsabbli għar-relazzjonijiet mas-soċjetà ċivili Russa.

Sa mill-bidu tal-gwerra kontra l-Ukrajna mill-awtoritajiet tal-Federazzjoni Russa fl-24 ta' Frar 2022 'il hawn, is-soċjetà ċivili ħielsa fir-Russja ġiet imsikkta permezz ta' liġijiet speċjali u repressjoni dejjem akbar, u ħafna kritiċi kienu mġiegħla jeżiljaw ruħhom.

Fiċ-ċirkostanzi diffiċli attwali, il-KESE ddeċieda jżomm ħajja l-possibbiltà għal djalogu mas-sezzjoni tas-soċjetà ċivili Russa li hija kontra l-gwerra u li tinsab fit-territorju tal-UE.

Dan wassal għal skambji produttivi ta' informazzjoni u fehmiet dwar kif għandhom jissoktaw ir-relazzjonijiet bilaterali ladarba tintemm il-gwerra u jerġa' jkun hemm il-libertà u d-demokrazija fil-pajjiż.

    Anti-gypsyism and discrimination are important barriers to Roma enjoying full rights and this hearing plans to map possible avenues for redress for Roma, including equality bodies. The hearing will allow for the exchange of best practices on how Roma can address violations of their rights.

  • The EESC Employers' Group is organising a seminar on "Strengthening European Growth and Competitiveness: Proactive Trade Agenda – NOW!" taking place on 26 October in Helsinki and jointly organized with the Confederation of Finnish Industries and the International Chamber of Commerce, ICC Finland.

    Trade and Investment are hugely important for the EU: 1 in 7 EU jobs depend on exports. The EU cannot risk falling behind in the global race to build a wide and ambitious network of free trade agreements. The signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (involving 12 countries and 40% of world GDP) is a timely reminder of this. This seminar, which will be attended by many of our Members together with Finnish employers and entrepreneurs, politicians and academics aims to examine how to best contribute positively to the debate as trade agreements (TTIP - TISA - CETA - EU-JAPAN) increasingly become a top political issue.

Through this dialogue, made possible by a series of bilateral bodies, and through specialized opinions and information reports, the Committee is able to concretely contribute to EU foreign policy.
