10,000 Corporate Lobbyists In Europe

Recommended Posts

Any chance to get an angle on the housing crisis with a housing-related nomination? Any ideas?


"Backed by almost a billion euros per year, over 10.000 corporate lobbyists roam the corridors of power in Brussels. Ever more inventive and often problematic ways of gaining influence are gaining ground. Pretending to be concerned environmentalists, buying science, funding anarcho- capitalist think-tanks, and securing first class treatment and access by EU bodies, powerful lobby groups manage to get their interests satisfied.

And more is yet to come. As lobbying veteran Daniel Guéguen put it: “in the future […] we will tend to adopt ever tougher lobbying strategies […] that will probably involve practices such as manipulation, destabilisation or disinformation."

We bring you a sample of offensive lobbying practices, selected from our research and investigations throughout the year as well as media reports and other publications. Next year we welcome you the public to nominate your personal favourite cases of slippery spin and disinformation for The EU Worst Lobby Award 2006."

By the way, if lobbying / campaigning, etc. just isn't worth it, how come 10,000 lobbyists, on fat salaries, roam around in Brussels?
