Academic research


Whilst research on interest groups and advocacy tends to be rather niche, there are active academic researchers in Europe, the USA and Australia. The European Consortium in Political Research has a Standing Group on Interest Groups which is open to anyone with an interest in research on interest groups (and for PhD candidates, they have an excellent summer school). Whilst academics publish in a wide range of journals, there is one journal specifically dedicated to Interest Groups and Advocacy
