The intention of this book's contributions is to focus on some key aspects of social capital in the context of civic participation, governance and civil society at both national and EU levels. The role of new EU members is particularly stressed. The texts aim to demonstrate how social capital in the form of co-operative norms and actions facilitates the self-organisation of civil society and its internal ability to articulate policy relevant alternative proposals. The efficiency and responsiveness of governance at different - local, national, transnational - levels are also addressed. Besides theoretical reconsiderations, the book draws attention to the issue of the quality of data and greater methodological reflexivity.

Its approach and findings will appeal to scholars and advanced students of EU integration, social movements, and the politics of South East Europe.

Interest organizations have always assumed a prominent place in European politics because they link states with citizens, institutionalize the resolution of social conflicts, regulate important sectors of the economy and society, contribute to workable policy outcomes and socialize members into democratic politics. However, the plethora of interest group studies that exist have not consolidated our understanding of these actors. These analyses have been subject to the vagaries of different theoretical perspectives and vary greatly in their conceptual and methodological frameworks. Consequently, a not always complementary and fragmented series of findings has emerged. This book is a systematic and comprehensive effort at investigating and integrating the state of the art in European interest group research. Combining the analysis of interest group politics in the EU with the comparative study of interest organizations, the book seeks to identify the areas about which there is consolidated knowledge, that are marked by controversies, in which considerable uncertainty exists, that have been omitted from research programs and that ought to be part of future studies. Thereby, it provides a general reflection on how the study of interest group politics can be improved by linking it to the comparative study of governance. This book was published as a special issue of West European Politics.

This volume focuses on the role of organized civil society in European public policies. The contributions discuss the role of public-pressure groups and their relations with organized business and institutional actors. They examine the context of interest representation in EU institutions, reviewing the functions and opportunities of EU lobbies and public-interest groups in several policy areas. These include environmental policy and the impact of environmental social movements, and anti-racist policy in the broader context of anti-discrimination policy. Several contributions suggest that policy-making emerges from a fragmented coalition of NGOs, politicians and civil servants operating in connected but distinct regulative environments.

The concept of governance has increasingly attracted practitioners and scholars of politics and public administration. "Governance" comprises reflections on new forms of public control and regulation, which strive to come to terms with the complex challenges of modern societies. Besides the potential gains in efficiency, governance has immense normative implications due to possible problems of accountability and transparency. The European context provides a particular interesting field of study as it represents an evolving political system. This volume presents an overview of current research on this topic, compromised of both theoretical and empirical studies. Specifically, it addresses questions regarding the role of interest groups in formulating European public policies at the European and the national level. What impact do interests groups have? What determines their influence? What are the empirical and normative implications? By bringing together contributions that approach these questions from different perspectives, the volume offers a stimulating outlook that should inspire further research in the field. It is particularly relevant for students of European integration and interest intermediation in comparative politics.
