EESC President Malosse takes part in the NGO Forum 2015 in Riga
EESC President Malosse emphasised that civil dialogue and social dialogue (the participation of social partners – organisations representing employers and workers - in decision-making) were complementary processes. "We would certainly all benefit if we could ensure greater synergy between these two movements" stated President Malosse.
He also declared that the principle of subsidiarity in social legislation – where some decisions were taken by the social partners and confirmed by the legislative process – had great potential and was underused at the moment.
He also suggested that the same principle of subsidiarity should be envisaged for civil society too. "We should insert horizontal subsidiarity in the treaties, on subjects where decision-making by civil society players would be most effective" stated the President.
