The fourth chapter provides a map of interest group activity in multilevel Europe. It draws on data from two surveys to discuss key characteristics of the interest groups that lobby in the European multilevel system and to give a descriptive overview of lobbying behaviour. Among the findings that emerge is that on average, interest groups in Europe are small and resource-poor organizations. They also tend to be quite specialized in terms of policy areas that they are interested in, but not particularly picky in their choice of lobbying tactics. This descriptive analysis of the data offers initial empirical support for some assumptions underlying the argument about lobbying insiders and lobbying outsiders and for some steps in the causal reasoning presented in this book.
