Lobbying Success in the European Union : The Role of Information and Frames Hardback
Part of the Routledge Advances in European Politics series
Having information is key in most political decisions - for both decision-makers and societal actors.
This is especially crucial in democratic countries where external stakeholders are invited to participate in decision-making processes.
Assuming that every actor who gets involved in decision-making processes has a certain lobbying goal, we face a heterogeneous set of actors competing against each other to provide information to the decision-makers.
This competition leads some stakeholders to be more successful in achieving their goals than others.
Frames and the framing of information play an important role in such lobbying success. In this book, Daniel Rasch questions if and how information impacts lobbying success and shows how groups perform in three instances of European decision-making.
He does so by combining findings from a qualitative content analysis with the results of a cross-case analysis using the quantified qualitative data.
The new dataset contains a representative sample of over 200 position papers from EU level and national consultations, press releases and evidence from national stakeholders from Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.ï¿½ Lobbying Success in the European Union effectively bridges research from interest mediation and framing studies and offers a new model about how to measure stakeholders' success.
This new and pragmatic approach to study lobbying success with a traceable and easy to use instrument can be used and adapted to any policy analysis and issue.
