The aim of this course is to enable students to get acquainted with the practice and theory of interest representation and lobbying in the European Union. In addition to introducing students with main theories and relevant research in the field of interest group politics, the course will offer the opportunity for improving understanding of various factors affecting the patterns of strategic behaviour or interest groups and differences in interest representation between organizational types, issues and countries.

Besides, students will be able to explore the channels and techniques of influence of interest groups at various stages of the EU decision-making process. Moreover, throughout this course, students will be able to practice their argumentative and critical thinking skills through debates, role play, as well as development and presentation of individual projects related to self-researched hot EU policy issues.
