NGO Training – On the Collective Complaints Procedure under the ESC – Brussels 22 Sept. 2015


Awareness-raising and training for Non-Governmental Organisations organised by the Council of Europe’s INGOs Conference and Social Platform, with the support of ANESC – Academic Network on the European Social Charter and Social Rights, in the framework of the “Turin Process”

22 September 2015, European Economic and Social Committee, Trèves Building, 7th floor, 74 rue de Trèves, 1040 Brussels


The purpose of the training is to make sure that European Non-Governmental Organisations are duly informed about the Collective Complaints Procedure and fully aware of their key role in its operation, with a view to a better protection of fundamental social rights at the pan-European level. The training therefore aims at:

1. Improving knowledge of INGOs about the Collective Complaints Procedure and the related normative system of the European Social Charter;

2. Promoting an in depth exchange of views and experiences among INGOs with respect to the procedure, in relation to specific themes, provisions and/or States Parties;

3. Providing technical advice with respect to possible questions from INGOs wishing to make better use of the procedure.

The training is part of the ‘Turin process  launched by the Secretary General of the Council of Europe at the High-Level Conference on the European Social Charter (Turin, 17-18 October 2014).

The ‘Turin process’ aims at reinforcing the normative system of the Charter within the Council of Europe and in its relationship with the law of the European Union. The objective is to improve the implementation of fundamental social rights throughout Europe, in parallel to the civil and political rights guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights.

High level conference on the European Social Charter, Turin 17-18 october 2014 : the ANESC participates


Program of the high level Conference - tr_Page_1THE CONTEXT

On 17 and 18 October a High-level Conference on the European Social Charter will take place. This conference will bring together representatives from the Member States (47) and institutions of the Council of Europe as well as the European Union. The following issues are on the agenda:

  • The relationship between European Union Law and the Social Charter,
  • The development of the collective complaint procedure,
  • The economic crisis and social rights.


At the meeting of the General Assembly in Paris, on 29 November 2013, the Network decided to contribute to this High-level Conference, which it considers to be of a strategic value for the future of the European Social Charter.

The first way of contribution consists of participating to the discussions of the Conference, through the three panels. The ANESC will be represented by

  • Prof. Olivier DE SCHUTTER (University of Louvain, Belgium. Panel 1),
  • Prof. Jean-François AKANDJI-KOMBÉ (University of Paris 1, Panthéon- Sorbonne, France. Panel 2),
  • Prof Urfan KHALIQ (University of Cardiff, UK. Panel 2),
  • Prof. Giovanni GUIGLIA (University of Verone, Italy. Panel 3).

The second way is a round table organized by the Network itself on the day before the Conference (16 oct.). The aim of this round table is to report on the analyses and propositions drawn up by the Network on the topics dealt with by the Conference.

The third and last way consists of a general paper of the ANESC, to address to each Delegation to the Conference, as a working and reference document.

In fine, the fourth way consists in papers produced by individual members of the ANESC.
