De betrekkingen tussen de EU en haar zuiderburen vormen een van onze prioriteiten. Onze werkzaamheden omvatten een groot aantal terreinen, zoals de deelname van het maatschappelijk middenveld aan de politieke en civiele dialoog, de democratische transitie, jeugdwerkgelegenheid, duurzame ontwikkeling, mobiliteit en immigratie, handel, hernieuwbare energie en bedrijfsontwikkeling.

Het EESC houdt zich sinds 1995 bezig met deze kwesties. Nadat de regio in 2010 wijzigingen heeft ondergaan, hebben wij onze doelstellingen dienovereenkomstig aangepast. Deze zijn nu gericht op:

  • Het ondersteunen van organisaties van het maatschappelijk middenveld in landen die een overgang doormaken. Deze steun is voornamelijk gericht op vakbonden en werkgeversorganisaties, alsmede vrouwen-, jongeren- en landbouworganisaties.
  • Het onderhouden van bilaterale betrekkingen met de nationale sociaal-economische raden in de regio, en het werken aan de totstandkoming van voorwaarden voor de opname van het maatschappelijk middenveld in de politieke dialoog in de zuidelijke partnerlanden.
  • Het opstellen van adviezen en gemeenschappelijke verslagen over de belangrijkste beleidsuitdagingen van de regio.
  • Het organiseren van regelmatige bijeenkomsten met Europese instellingen en internationale organisaties om de beleidsmaatregelen inzake het maatschappelijk middenveld in de hele regio te bespreken.
  • Het organiseren van een jaarlijkse top voor de economische en sociale raden en soortgelijke instellingen, waarbij belangrijke beleidsaanbevelingen inzake de grootste uitdagingen van de regio worden gedaan aan de beleidsvormers van de nationale regeringen en de EU.
