Países do alargamento

O CESE participa ativamente no processo de alargamento da UE e desenvolveu uma dupla abordagem – regional e bilateral – nas suas relações com as organizações da sociedade civil dos países do alargamento.

No que diz respeito à abordagem regional, o Comité de Acompanhamento para os Balcãs Ocidentais – órgão interno permanente do CESE – é o principal instrumento de coordenação das atividades do CESE nesta região. O Fórum da Sociedade Civil dos Balcãs Ocidentais, organizado de dois em dois anos, faz parte do trabalho do Comité de Acompanhamento.

O CESE também trabalha a nível bilateral com países dos Balcãs Ocidentais e a Turquia. Com base nos acordos de associação entre esses países e a UE, a fim de envolver as organizações da sociedade civil nos processos de pré-adesão e de adesão, o CESE criou três órgãos mistos com representantes da sociedade civil – com a Turquia, o Montenegro e a Sérvia. Cada órgão é composto por um número igual de membros do CESE e do país parceiro e reúne duas vezes por ano.

O CESE mantém contactos regulares e organiza atividades conjuntas com as organizações da sociedade civil dos países do alargamento com os quais ainda não foi criado um órgão conjunto de representantes da sociedade civil.

Os trabalhos dos órgãos conjuntos são complementados pela elaboração de pareceres do CESE sobre os processos de pré-adesão e de adesão de cada país, bem como sobre temas de interesse regional.

Civil society representatives from both the EU and Turkey called on Turkish authorities to undertake major reforms in the fields of rule of law and human rights as a prerequisite to resume accession negotiations with the EU. This was one of the main conclusions of the 38th meeting of the EU-Turkey Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) held in Brussels on 8 and 9 April, which also agreed on the important role of the JCC as an open channel for exchanges at civil society level.

EESC

The EESC will keep on advocating for the enlargement process to go on, in an inclusive, transparent and fair manner. Any delay due to the current turmoil in the EU has to be seen as a chance for reaching a better level of preparedness when entering the EU. But for this opportunity to be seized, the EU needs to work side by side with civil society in the region.
