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 in the international context, particularly concerning public health legislation for sugar and alcohol tax. An additional purpose was to challenge the negative connotations attached to lobbying: Decision-makers need information, and interest groups want to share it with them. However, those with power and resources are more likely to be able to get their message across, especially if lobbying is not made transparent. Influence on legislation that is exerted behind closed doors can endanger democracy.
