European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)


Homepage | YouTube | Facebook

The EESC is the only consultative body at European Union level that gives the Commission, the Council and the Parliament the points of view of the people "on the ground" - those most directly affected by EU legislation. Its membership is made up of representatives of Europe's employers' organizations, trade unions, farmers, consumer groups, professional associations, and so on. What is particularly distinctive about the EESC is that it is a non-political organization, and exists to give advice on a wide range of practical matters.
