If you are interested in lobbying, public affairs and interest group politics in European countries, this is the place for you.
In the section below you find some excertps from our book Lobbying in Europe, updates, opinions and various posts authored by qualified experts participating to our project.
"Professors Bitonti and Harris have produced a timely, relevant work for anyone interested in the actual practice and effectiveness of lobbying in Europe.

It is a balancing act that requires skill and timing--and this work delivers on both."
"Bitonti and Harris have produced an impressive tome on the dark arts of how businesses and NGO should seek political influence. No self respecting public affairs practitioner should be without this impressive, and thoroughly comprehensive, text surveying lobbying across all of the EU"
