Thousands of lobbyists lobby decision-makers in Brussels every day, but little is known about their impact on policy. 'Lobbying in the European Union' addresses this research gap and analyses the conditions under which interest groups can successfully lobby the European institutions.
This work is an assessment of the coordinating potential of 'new' modes of governance in the EU. It attempts to develop policy coordination as new focus within EU scholarship and to invigorate and substantially re-orientate the theoretical debate about policy networks in the EU.
