Wschodni sąsiedzi

Działania EKES-u związane ze wschodnimi sąsiadami UE obejmują Armenię, Azerbejdżan,  Białoruś, Gruzję, Mołdawię i Ukrainę. Głównym celem EKES-u w odniesieniu do europejskich sąsiadów wschodnich jest rozszerzanie stosunków z organizacjami społeczeństwa obywatelskiego w regionie i angażowanie ich w dialog zarówno z decydentami krajowymi, jak i ze zorganizowanym społeczeństwem obywatelskim UE.

Głównymi mechanizmami współpracy z Gruzją, Mołdawią i Ukrainą są platformy społeczeństwa obywatelskiego, które uzupełniają organy polityczne istniejące w ramach układów o stowarzyszeniu UE z tymi państwami. Platformy umożliwiają organizacjom społeczeństwa obywatelskiego z UE i z krajów partnerskich nadzorowanie procesu wdrażania oraz przygotowanie zaleceń dla właściwych organów. 

Ze strony UE do platform należą członkowie EKES-u oraz przedstawiciele dużych europejskich sieci społeczeństwa obywatelskiego.  Ze strony krajów partnerskich należy do nich szeroki wachlarz organizacji społeczeństwa obywatelskiego.  Członkostwo w platformie opiera się na zrównoważonej reprezentacji wszystkich grup interesów (organizacji pracodawców, związków zawodowych i innych podmiotów).

W ramach EKES-u w lipcu 2004 r. powołano Komitet Monitorujący ds. Wschodnich Sąsiadów UE jako specjalny organ odpowiedzialny za stosunki ze społeczeństwem obywatelskim w państwach wschodniego sąsiedztwa. Co roku organizuje on zazwyczaj cztery posiedzenia, a jego członkowie biorą aktywny udział w działaniach Partnerstwa Wschodniego, takich jak wielostronne platformy i Forum Społeczeństwa Obywatelskiego Partnerstwa Wschodniego.
