The objectives of this project are: 1/Initiate a public debate on lobbying and its regulations – despite the government declaration from January 2007 to adopt a certain regulation of lobbying no concrete steps have been conducted yet. Therefore we have decided to start a public debate on this issue, to form a forum of experts and involve media into this process as much as possible and 2/Formulate a concrete legislative proposal and advocate it publicly – the second crucial objective of this project is a formulation of concrete legislative proposal which could be used as a suitable tool for advocacy work. Advocacy part of the project counts on public seminars/conferences and media articles.
