Business power in regulation is not merely about lobbying political decision makers. The need for rule specification generates multiple avenues for business influence. In her talk, Sandra will develop a conceptual framework for analysing business power, elaborate on the politics of regulation in the EU context, and present key findings discussed in her recently published book on Corporate Power and Regulation. Consumers and the Environment in the European Union (Palgrave 2019).
