Speaker(s): Dr. Markus Frischhut
While lobbying can play an important role for democracy, it needs to find its limitations both in legal as well as ethical provisions.
At EU level, we find such provisions mainly in codes of conduct, a form of soft law. Besides rules on transparency, conflict of interests and the revolving doors phenomenon, these documents refer to ethical principles mainly in an implicit way, by using terms as "integrity", "diligence", "honesty", "accountability" etc.
Those provisions mainly apply for the targets of lobbying, while we find similar, however less, provisions concerning actors of lobbying. Recent changes adopted by Parliament and Council can be seen as important steps towards more ethical lobbying, an important step towards regaining European citizens' trust.
Dr. Markus Frischhut, LLM. is Jean Monnet Professor of European integration and ethics and Study Coordinator European Union Law at MCI Management Center, Innsbruck.
