Grannländerna i öst

This page is also available in

EESK:s verksamhet när det gäller grannländerna i öst omfattar Armenien, Azerbajdzjan, Vitryssland, Georgien, Moldavien och Ukraina. EESK:s främsta mål när det gäller grannländerna i Östeuropa är att stärka förbindelserna med civilsamhällesorganisationerna i regionen och involvera dem i en dialog med både deras nationella politiska beslutsfattare och EU:s organiserade civila samhälle.

De viktigaste mekanismerna för samarbete med Georgien, Moldavien och Ukraina är plattformarna för det civila samhället (tag to all three) som kompletterar de politiska organ som finns inom ramen för EU:s associeringsavtal med dessa länder. Plattformarna ger det civila samhällets organisationer från både EU och partnerlandet en möjlighet att övervaka genomförandeprocessen och utarbeta sina rekommendationer till de berörda myndigheterna.

På EU:s sida består dessa plattformar av EESK-ledamöter och företrädare för stora europeiska nätverk för det civila samhället. På partnerlandets sida representerar de ett brett spektrum av civilsamhällesorganisationer. Plattformarnas sammansättning bygger på principen om en balanserad representation av alla intressegrupper (arbetsgivarorganisationer, fackföreningar och olika intressegrupper).

Inom EESK inrättades 2004 Uppföljningskommittén för grannländerna i öst som ett särskilt organ med ansvar för förbindelserna med det civila samhället i de länder som ingår i det östliga partnerskapet. Uppföljningskommittén sammanträder vanligen fyra gånger per år och dess ledamöter deltar aktivt i det östliga partnerskapets verksamhet, t.ex. det östliga partnerskapets multilaterala plattformar och forum för det civila samhället.
