Business Lobbying in the European Union - Book Cover
At a time when Europe and business stand at crossroads, "Business Lobbying in the European Union" (Oxford University Press) provides a perspective into how business representation in the EU has evolved; as well as valuable insights into how to organize lobbying strategies and influence policymaking. Uniquely, the authors analyse business lobbying in Brussels by drawing from political science, public management, and business studies. The study uses a variety of methods to analyse business government relations drawing on unique business and policy-maker surveys; in-depth case studies and elite interviews; large N statistical analyses of lobbying registers; and managerial career path and organizational analyses to assess corporate political capabilities.
