Priorities, challenges and prospects for civil society involvement in the Europe 2020 strategy beyond 2015
This study was carried out by Andrea Bellagamba following a call for tenders launched by the European Economic and Social Committee. The study includes the analysis of the role played by organised civil society in the policy making process, in the context of the Lisbon strategy and Europe 2020 strategy. More specifically, it focuses on the role played by the EESC through the network set up with the national Economic and social councils, as well as with European civil society organisations. The study presents case studies of four Member States: Belgium, France, Italy and the Netherlands.
