Evarist Beqiri, Saimir Shatku, Mimoza Sadushaj


The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of the developments in the European lobbying arena and its main actors. The thesis is based on the latest studies in this field. Along with the dynamic development of the European institutions, the number of interest organizations at European level increased. Besides the EU institutions, the private actors operating at the European level can be divided into two main groups: the group that protects business interests and the group that does not protect them. After the first direct elections for the European Parliament and the adoption of the Single European Act, an increase of lobbying activities in EU is noticed.
