It is sponsored each year by a French or European parliamentarian, who shares his vision of lobbying with the students and institutional relations professionals participating in the Competition.
The interests of the Competition for partners (companies, federations, NGOs…):
– Having four or five dossiers (one per master participant), each including a study of the context and the actors involved, then a deepening of the problem, and finally specific recommendations,
– Benefiting from a diversity of points of view on your subjects,
– Considering new lobbying strategies,
– Communicating publicly about your commitment to transparent lobbying.
The Competition calendar:
From October to December 2019, the partners of the Competition work out a lobbying problem, in consultation with the organizers. Five partners are selected to submit their topics to the students.
Between January and May 2020, the students of the five participating masters (Institute for Political Studies, Universities, Business Schools) meet with the representatives of the partners and prepare their analysis and operational proposals.
Between May and June 2020, student dossiers are evaluated by a jury composed of representatives of the partners and external public affairs professionals.
At the end of June 2020, an award ceremony is held in the presence of the Parliamentary Sponsor of the Competition, as well as other politicians, lobbyists and journalists.
Interested organizations are called to contact us before November 29th, to become partner of this new Lobbying Competition edition.
