Abstract

The last decade has seen a remarkable transformation in the study of European national and EU interest representation toward mid-range theories tested with large-N research. One result of these developments is renewed anticipation about the emergence of a true comparative theory of interest representation, one fully attentive to the importance of institutional and issue context. Given this expansion of large-N research on interest representation, the articles in this special issue examine several of the most important methodological issues inherent in such analyses as typified by the still on going INTEREURO (Comparative Research on Interest Group Politics in Europe) Project, sponsored by the European Science Foundation (10-ECRP-008).
