Interest Group Influence in the European Union

Influencing policy outcomes is the aim of much interest group activity. The focus of this project, which is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), is to address questions such as: do interest groups affect the policies that are made by EU institutions? How much influence do corporations, citizen groups, and other lobbyists have on policy outcomes in the EU? Are some groups more influential than others? If so, why? For more information, see the  project website.
