What is Political Advocacy?

Political advocacy is the range of tools that enable a company, a business association or an NGO to participate in the EU policy-making of the Institutions.

EU community decision-making is a complex system involving the national capitals, the EU Commission and the Parliament.

Of course public opinion and the media also play a role in the system, owing to the NGOs and citizens or consumer associations.

Political advocacy is about

  • Thinking politically
  • Communicating with clear and short messages
  • Taking part in debates and platforms
  • Being knowledgeable about positions
  • Contacting in due course key officials and MEPs
  • Playing with national positions
  • Positioning you as a constructive and transparent partner with the Institutions
  • Presenting facts, reasoning, participating in the policy thinking rather than exerting pressure
  • Supporting one of the policy options on the table
  • Favouring compromise
  • Parliamentary Relations
     

The European affairs consultancy represents the client in some cases.
