Oostelijke buurlanden

This page is also available in

De activiteiten van het EESC betreffende de oostelijke buurlanden hebben betrekking op Armenië, Azerbeidzjan, Wit-Rusland, Georgië, Moldavië en Oekraïne. Het hoofddoel van het EESC als het gaat om de oostelijke buurlanden is om de betrekkingen met de organisaties uit het maatschappelijk middenveld in de regio te verbeteren en om deze organisaties te betrekken bij de dialoog met zowel hun nationale beleidsmakers als met de organisaties uit het maatschappelijk middenveld van de EU.

De belangrijkste samenwerkingsmechanismen met Georgië, Moldavië en Oekraïne zijn de platforms voor het maatschappelijk middenveld die een aanvulling vormen op de politieke organen in het kader van de associatieovereenkomsten van de EU met deze landen. De platforms stellen maatschappelijke organisaties uit zowel de EU als het partnerland in staat toezicht te houden op het uitvoeringsproces en hun aanbevelingen aan de betrokken autoriteiten voor te bereiden.

Aan EU-zijde bestaan deze platforms uit leden van het EESC en vertegenwoordigers van grote Europese netwerken van het maatschappelijk middenveld. Aan de kant van het partnerland vertegenwoordigen zij een breed spectrum van maatschappelijke organisaties. Het lidmaatschap van de platforms is gebaseerd op een evenwichtige vertegenwoordiging van alle belangengroepen (werkgeversorganisaties, vakbonden en diverse belangengroepen).

Het follow-upcomité Oostelijke buurlanden werd opgericht in 2004 als een speciaal EESC-orgaan dat verantwoordelijk is voor de betrekkingen met het maatschappelijk middenveld in de oostelijke buurlanden. Het follow-upcomité vergadert gewoonlijk viermaal per jaar en de leden nemen actief deel aan de activiteiten van het Oostelijk Partnerschap, zoals multilaterale platforms van het Oostelijk Partnerschap en het Forum van het maatschappelijk middenveld van het Oostelijk Partnerschap.
