Welcome to the murky world of corporate lobbying. There are an estimated 25,000 lobbyists working in Brussels; most of whom are representing the interests of corporations and their lobby groups. This virtual tour will take you through the EU Quarter to give you an idea of the different types of corporate lobby actors and tactics they use to influence decision making in the European Union.

Corporate lobbying tends to thrive in the absence of public scrutiny. So the more of us who are watching, getting informed and taking action, the better!
