Sodelovanje EESO z organizacijami civilne družbe v Rusiji temelji na petih vodilnih načelih za odnose med EU in Rusijo, ki so jih sprejeli ministri EU za zunanje zadeve in visoka predstavnica Unije za zunanje zadeve in varnostno politiko. Eno od teh vodilnih načel je „podpiranje medosebnih stikov“.

Dialog in izmenjava izkušenj med predstavniki civilne družbe iz EU in Rusije bistveno prispevata k nadaljnjemu izvajanju strateškega partnerstva med EU in Rusijo. EESO je sprejel dvojni pristop k odnosom z rusko civilno družbo, da bi sodeloval s čim širšim razponom predstavnikov civilne družbe. Na eni strani vzdržuje odnose z državljansko zbornico Ruske federacije, svojo uradno rusko partnerico, in med drugim organizira skupne letne seminarje o temah, zanimivih za civilno družbo na obeh straneh. Drugi partner EESO je forum civilne družbe EU-Rusija, pri katerem sodelujejo različne organizacije civilne družbe.

Spremljevalni odbor EU-Rusija je notranji organ EESO, ki deluje kot usmerjevalna skupina in je odgovoren za razvoj in vzdrževanje odnosov ter organizacijo sestankov in skupnih seminarjev s civilno družbo v Rusiji.

Ahead of the international Roma Day on 8 April, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will hold a hearing on "Anti-gypsyism, possible responses", which will feed into the work of the EESC permanent study group on Roma inclusion monitoring the implementation the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies.

Anti-gypsyism is an important barrier to the effective implementation of the framework and national integration strategies, and the hearing wants to shed light on possible responses to this cross-cutting problem. The European refugee crisis acerbates problems with general racism, xenophobia which also affects Roma. A hearing on anti-gypsyism and other forms of racism and xenophobia will allow exchanging best practices on how to combat these phenomena.

The EESC Employers' Group is organising a seminar on "Strengthening European Growth and Competitiveness: Proactive Trade Agenda – NOW!" taking place on 26 October in Helsinki and jointly organized with the Confederation of Finnish Industries and the International Chamber of Commerce, ICC Finland.

Trade and Investment are hugely important for the EU: 1 in 7 EU jobs depend on exports. The EU cannot risk falling behind in the global race to build a wide and ambitious network of free trade agreements. The signing of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (involving 12 countries and 40% of world GDP) is a timely reminder of this. This seminar, which will be attended by many of our Members together with Finnish employers and entrepreneurs, politicians and academics aims to examine how to best contribute positively to the debate as trade agreements (TTIP - TISA - CETA - EU-JAPAN) increasingly become a top political issue.

When it comes to Roma issues, the gender dimension has long been neglected. However, women have an essential role in Roma society and ensuring their participation is a key element in improving their situation. Romani women across Europe often face discrimination on multiple fronts: racism for being Roma, as well as gender discrimination.

It is not possible to speak about the inclusion of Roma if half of their community has little or no opportunity to express their needs and make their voice heard. Roma inclusion policy needs Roma women activists and advocates. The gender dimension can also play an important role in the success of National Roma Integration Strategies (NRISs).
