European Economic and Social Committee

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) brings together civil society representatives from across Europe to express their points of views on a range of EU issues. As its opinions are forwarded to the EU institutions, it has a key role to play in the Union's decision-making process.

FRA regularly presents its work to the EESC and in particular to its Employment, Social Affairs and Citizenship section (SOC). The agency participates in numerous EESC meetings of the EESC to acquaint the committee with relevant findings in various areas of fundamental rights issues such as Roma, irregular migrants, combating violence against women and homophobia.
