Comparative insight into the status of the lobbying regulation debate in Estonia



The article looks at lobbying regulation polemic based on the Estonian case-study—how lobbying as an issue came to be on the political agenda and what the outcomes of the discussion have been. The article also provides a focused overview of how Estonia's neighbouring states have tackled the issue. The article looks at the lobbying agenda setting and policy choices of Western Baltic Sea countries (Finland, Sweden and Denmark) and of a sample of postcommunist states that share the destiny of Estonia in contemporary history (Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic).
