At a time when Europe and business stand at crossroads, this study 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 policy-making. 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 governments 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.
This book includes unique data on business lobbying that span more than 30 years. It employs an innovative theoretical approach that combines political science with business studies. It offers an unparalleled empirical mapping of business lobbying in the EU, and a uniquely diverse methodological perspective.
