News & Affairs

19. 02. 24

On Friday, February 16, presentation of the book "Interest representation process. Explanations and comments" and a discussion devoted to lobbying regulation took place, in which one of the book's co-authors Arturs Caics from FORT took part.
The book has been created as an extended commentary to the Interest Representation Openness Law and consists of several chapters, within which the meaning of interest representation (lobbyism) and various issues related to it are explained.
Two of the chapters have been drafted by Arturs, providing comments on the legislative process in the Parliament of Latvia, as well as on the interconnection between lobbyism and principle of good legislation. Arturs also spoke about these issues in the discussion dedicated to the opening of the book, emphasizing the role of lobbyism in preparing high-quality laws and ensuring compliance with the principle of good legislation.
The publishers of the book express the hope that it will not only become a manual for civil society, providing support for more effective participation in political decision-making, but will also help the legislator to work more efficiently on the preparation of laws and cooperate more with civil society.
