Regulating lobbying is a rather recent concept in the majority of EU member states. Currently, only seven member states (France, Ireland, Lithuania, Austria, Poland, Slovenia and the UK) have legislation on lobbying activities, as well as a mandatory register of lobbyists. The most recent law has been adopted in France on 8 November 2016. Lobbying regulations are a form of transparency law that lets citizens know who is lobbying whom about what. This chapter offers a discussion of recent international dynamics in lobbying regulations. With a focus on the EU regulation, we present a comparative analysis of the robustness of lobbying laws in 16 jurisdictions found throughout the world, offering key insights into the recent trends of strengthening lobbying rules globally.
