Notes & Comments (05/03/2009) - The lobbying in the European Union
Title: The lobbying in the European Union
Subject: In the ‘50s and ‘60s many organizations of interest, both public and private, have opened an office of representation in Brussels. The publication of the “White Paper” and entry into force, two years later, of the Single European Act have fostered the transition from a representation of national interests still highly organized on a European basis. In 1992 the Commission has adopted two complementary communications, one on transparency, one on interest groups, taking up the idea of a code of conduct for lobbyists and a database and noting the importance of dialogue with the groups, for providing valuable technical information and constructive suggestions.
