Interest Articulation and Aggregation
Professor Lindberg demonstrates how closely the pluralistic environment of the European Common Market approaches the optimal model of interest group interaction discussed in Chapter I. Also, the mainthrust of this selection is to point out the noticeable increase in interest group activity of a transnational nature during the formative years of the Common Market. Attention is particularly called to the different ways in which these groups attempt to influence the process of decision-making in both the member-state governments and the organs of the EEC, and to Lindberg’s discussion of the possible, crucial shifts in loyalties of the relevant elites toward the supranational organization.
