The power of lobbies
Brussels is at the centre of EU decision-making and as such attracts thousands of lobbyists promoting the interests of big business. In this section you can find basic information about this corporate lobbying and how it affects you as a citizen. Or you can visit our specific pages on the revolving door phenomenon of politicians who become lobbyists – and vice versa – and on the corporate dominance of expert groups whose advice helps make official policy for the EU.
If you want to investigate corporate lobbying, we have put together a list of online tools that can help.
Help us stay independent
We are a small team that works fully independently of funding from the EU, governments, political parties and corporations. Every single donation helps us fight the hold of Big Business over the EU. Thanks!
