EUCIS-LLL and transparency
EUCIS-LLL works with other NGOs to support transparency and civil society participation in EU decision-making. In many policy areas corporate or private interests dominate the expert groups that advice the European Commission in drafting its various communications. EUCIS-LLL worked for example with its partners in the framework of the Civil Society Contact Group (CSCG) to promote a more regulated approach to the European Transparency initiative. On 6 November CSCG Chair Monika Kosinska (EPHA) participated in a debate on “What’s in a Promise? Does the European Commission tackle corporate dominance in its Expert Groups?” organised by AK EUROPA, the Brussels office of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour, the ÖGB Europabüro, the Brussels office of the Austrian Trade Union Federation, and ALTER-EU, the Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation.
