Summary: This paper surveys the history of European Lobbying and recent empirical studies on current practice. It presents some key results on the structure, methods and stra-tegies of professional interest representation in Brussels. The briefing also comments on the Commission's European Transparency Initiative, underlining the need to create a single mandatory registry at the Commission and the European Parliament. An inter-institutional approach would reduce the opportunities for lobbyists to venue-shop and increase the exclusion costs of misinformation.
