WORKSHOP: Lobbying for Change – Citizens’ Advocacy in the European Union

A workshop organised by

Alberto Alemanno, HEC Paris and New York University School of Law

This workshop intends to develop advocacy skills and techniques enabling participants to act as effective advocate in the EU policy environment in various roles, be it as EU official, campaigner, citizen lobbyist, philanthropic officer, think-tanker or corporate lobbyist. Acting under the guidance of the instructor, participants will learn how to advocate for their cause by getting familiarized with the various channels of participation – both institutional (such as European Citizen Initiatives, public consultations, and EP petitions) and unconventional (such as digital campaigning, and astroturfing) – deployed in the EU policy space.
