Subject headingsCIvil service and human resource management ; European policies and legislation ; Code of conduct ; Fostering Equality
The EESC has six sections, which specialise in different policies: agriculture and environment; the single market; social issues; economic issues; energy, transport and IT infrastructure; and the external policies of the EU. Members belong to one or more of these sections depending on their areas of expertise, and it is here that the groundwork is laid for Committee opinions. The Committee also has a Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI), which monitors industry’s ability to anticipate and adapt to the impact of globalisation. The EESC has set up three specialist observatories – on the digital transition and the single market (DSMO), the labour market (LMO) and sustainable development (SDO). It also has a group focused on the European semester which considers European civil society proposals on growth and employment, a group on fundamental rights and the rule of law and a liaison group promoting civil dialogue and participatory democracy.
