>>Pandel debate video<< 

This workshop unites scholars and practitioners that think that we need to better understand interest groups’ effects in global governance. Specialized interests contribute to the policymaking and the provision of collective goods by international organizations such as the European Union and United Nations. The diversity of the content and the representativeness of the interest groups involved have important implications for the problem-solving capacity of international organizations. The workshop contributes with new knowledge on the effects of
interest groups in global governance, and bring scholars and practitioners into dialogue.
