Passau Essays on Lobbyism & Europeanisation
Lobbyism & Europeanisation. Those two terms are normally not used in the same time. My proseminar Interest representation in the European Union at the Passau University Universität Passau is dedicated to both fields of interest. After three semesters it is time to present interesting and worth reading essays – with the authorised by the authors of the students and the Jean Monnet Chair on European Politics. The serial in German language will be initiated by an essay on a difficult and theory oriented topic: Europeanisation by „Goodness of fit“ vulgo „Misfit“ by Agnes Kultzen. How much do theories fit to reality? Kultzen is sceptical. Other articles follow in no particular order, eg on the Dalli lobby affaire.
