As for the groups themselves, the interest population in the register is dominated... (More)
This paper examines the European Commission?s, newly established, ?Register of interest representatives? The analysis is divided in two parts, first I analyze the registers purpose, the kind, and detail, of information it contains and the different kinds of groups that are supposed to register.

The database was constructed with information drawn from the register, as well as information from external sources. Regarding the design and purpose of the register, I find that improvements in the design are needed, if the register is to fulfill its purpose. As for the groups themselves, the interest population in the register is dominated by different types of business interests and their respective organizations. There are also strong indications that the level of development and size of a country's economy is positively correlated to that country's level of representation. (Less)
