Representing interest groups: umbrella organisations enjoy preferential access to the legislative arena but not to the media

Publikation: AndetUdgivelser på nettet - Net-publikationFormidling

Lobbying for access to parliamentary and media debates potentially allows organisations to represent the interests of their members and exert political influence. Wiebke Marie Junk looks at which types of interest groups are favoured when it comes to lobbying access in the United Kingdom and Germany. She finds that access to the legislature is higher for ‘umbrella’ organisations that unite many member groups, while representing a higher number of individual people does not seem to matter.
