Lobbying, Power and Health – A European Vision

The purpose of the publication was to open up the debate on lobbying and to define it in both the Finish and international context, particularly around public health legislation around sugar and alcohol tax. An additional purpose is to challenge the negative connotations which surround lobbying. Decision makers need information, and interest groups want to share it with them. However, it is important to remember that those with power and resources will get their message across more easily, especially if lobbying is not open. Closed doors behind legislative influence can endanger democracy.
