    Abstract

    Studying patterns of interest intermediation in the new EU member states is an important research topic as it provides us with the opportunity to observe interest intermediation at its early stage of development. This article examines how accession to the EU affected intermediation of interest groups in CEECs. The author demonstrates it through the observation of the Czech agrarian sector and competing associations representing the dual structure of Czech farming. Particular attention is paid to the influence of the mid-term reviewed CAP. The paper concludes on different patterns of usage of ‘Europe’ by the mediators, through the inclusion in domestic or transnational networks.
