Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project attempts to shed light on which operational choices, that the interest organizations Landbrug & Fødevarer (LF) og Danmarks Naturfredningsforenings (DN), makes in the political system, based on a case. This case covers the creation, and the possible elimination of buffer zone law. Through a neo-corporatist understanding of how interest groups should be involved in decision-making, the project tries to explain how interest groups argue from the negotiating economic paradigm. Further project tries to analyze DN and LFS strategic choices in order to maximize their influence on the political agenda. This is done by including responses from DN and LF, from the introduction of buffer zone law and the possible elimination. This also covers how interest groups operate in the media as DN and LF act differently, based on their respective networks. Through a conceptualization of interest groups strategic choices, the project explains how DN and LF have acted during the implementation and the possible withdrawal, using Hillman & HITTS theory on corporate approach to lobbying. It is concluded in the project based on social constructivism and critical realism how organizations use different strategies to shape policy outputs. LF trying, in the given case, to work collectively, but keeps their focus on influencing decision makers around population. Opposite to those, DN likes to involve the population in decision-making. However have an individual approach, as they are the greatest environmental interest group in Denmark.
