About this book

This book sheds new light on how lobbying works in the European Union. Drawing on the first-hand professional experience of lobbyists, policymakers, and corporate and institutional stakeholders, combined with a sound academic foundation, it offers insights into successful lobbying strategies, such as how alliances are formed by interest groups in Brussels. The authors present key case studies, e.g. on the shelved EU-US trade deal Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), lobbying scandals, and the role of specific interest groups and EU Think-Tanks. Furthermore, they highlight efforts to improve transparency and ethical standards in EU decision-making, while also underscoring the benefits of lobbying in the context of decision-making.

Understanding the tools and techniques of effective lobbying, as well as the dynamics and trends in EU lobbying, will allow professionals involved in the lobbying process, such as policymakers and corporate and institutional stakeholders, to improve their performance and achieve better results when pursuing their respective interests.

She is board member of the Jean Monnet Chair on European integration & ethics (MCI Innsbruck), co-editor of the book series IUP/NOMOS and the IFIR working papers.

All in all, she can look back on almost 18 years of professional experience in Brussels, both within and outside the EU institutions. Besides her work in the European Parliament, she has held seminars at private universities on lobbying and the legislative process at European level and published several articles around these issues. She is also co-author of the first German-language handbook on the European Parliament and co-editor of an edited volume (also in German) on lobbying in the EU.
