CoR Opinions

The Treaties oblige the Commission, Council and the European Parliament to consult the Committee of the Regions whenever new proposals are made in areas that have repercussions at regional or local level. The Maastricht Treaty set out 5 such areas - economic and social cohesion, trans-European infrastructure networks, health, education and culture. The Amsterdam Treaty added another five areas - employment policy, social policy, the environment, vocational training and transport. After the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty, all three EU institutions have to consult the Committee of the Regions on several new policy areas, including energy, climate change and "services of general interest" i.e. social, public and infrastructure services.

The work carried out through the CoR's Europe 2020 Monitoring Platform supports and enriches the work of the CoR's Commissions, in their drawing up of Europe 2020-related opinions along the three Europe 2020 priorities.
