    Abstract

    Traditional approaches to the study of interest representation have been concerned with examining the role of interest groups within a political system. This is a worthwhile exercise. However, it leads to an incomplete picture. It is also important to explore what impact a political system has on interest representation. In adopting the Europeanisation framework outlined in this paper, we can begin to examine what impact the European Union (EU), as a political system, has had on interest representation among national level actors. This paper explores the EU-effect on the interest representation patterns among two sets of actors in the UK: business organisations and environmental groups. The research presented here reveals significant differences and similarities in the interest representation of the two groups, and exposes the broader Europeanisation mechanisms in operation.
