EUROMED

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.

The information report will seek to take a holistic approach to situation of young people in the north and south of the region, looking not just at the employment market but at wider trends amongst young people also outside of work, their self-perception, their political and social outlook on the future, their living arrangements, their view of their parents' generation and other older generations, as well as their view of the region and its role in a globalised world.

The exploratory opinion is being drawn up at the request of the Greek Presidency of the European Union. Immigration-related issues remain a key challenge for the European Union and its Member States with a comprehensive and common strategy at EU level remaining elusive, in spite of the continued pressures that are being felt on the EU's borders.

The opinion will set out civil society's perspective on the dual challenge which EU Member States face in dealing with recent waves of immigrants and at the same time fulfilling - or in some cases failing to fulfil - their duty in guaranteeing immigrants' human rights, be it in detention or whilst on high seas. This issue is particularly topical since the European Commission and European Court of Justice are coming increasingly under pressure to act against Member States that fail to meet EU rules.

This opinion is the EESC's key response to the events in the Euromed region. It provides a thorough analysis of the EU's past failings and the lessons which need to be drawn from them, the most urgent needs facing civil society in the current transition phase, and the longer term perspectives for civil society in the region. The opinion also responds to the two joint communications issued by the European Commission and EEAS on the EU's new Euromed policy, calling for close cooperation between the EU institutions in the region

The opinion examines what has become a key sector in the Euromed region. The uprisings in the Euromed region, besides putting the spotlight on the abuses of autocratic dictators, have also drawn attention to the urgent need for economic and social development, especially in rural areas. Food insecurity and high food prices are set to remain a problem in the region.
