Øyvind Ihlen gjesteredaktør for spesialnummer om lobbying

Professor Øyvind Ihlen er blant redaktørene for spesialutgaven av Journal of Public Affairs om lobbying og demokrati med tittelen "Lobbying Roles, the Public Interest and Democracy: Communication Perspectives"

Tidsskriftet tar nå imot papere, deadline for bidrag er 15. november 2018

Dette skriver Journal of Public Affairs om spesialnummeret:

Topics that will be considered for this special issue include (but are not limited to) a focus on evaluation of communication strategies in light of democratic ideals, the use of particular argument types, as well as communicative attempts to fuse private and public interests. What contribution does lobbying make in a democracy? What communication strategies are employed and how these can be evaluated against democratic goals of participation as well as the problem of unequal influence and regulatory capture? Is there any evidence that lobbying practitioners are boundary spanners assisting in orienting their clients towards serving the public interest, or do they merely advise on how to camouflage vested interests? How do we test to see if lobbyists are serving democracy and good governance, or acting as a hindrance? Are some organized interests marginalized or unmobilized? Communication scholarship can shed light on how the characteristics of organized interests influence the potential ground for arguments and their subsequent success in this regard. All theoretical and methodological approaches that help shed light on this are welcome.

Ihlen vil være medredaktør sammen med Anna Shavit ved Charles University i Praha, Chiara Valentini ved Universitetet i Aarhus samt Scott Davidsson ved University of Leicester. Les mer om spesialutgaven her!
