    Abstract

    Recently, the European Commission has made some significant steps towards the recognition of political party foundations at EU level. Firstly, it has agreed to acknowledge the political foundations as actors of European development policies. Secondly, it has launched a proposal leading to the creation of political foundations at EU level, linked to the European political parties. This article analyses the reasons, modalities and potential impact of this process. It focuses on the foundations' network-building activities as a means to attain legitimacy and access to the EU institutions. To understand this evolution, two factors will be emphasised: firstly, the mobilisation of political entrepreneurs in the European Parliament lobbying the Commission and Council representatives; and secondly, the politically opportune context of rethinking EU Communication policy. This article contributes to bridging the gap between the analysis of European politics and policies.
