The best cartoonists deliver two cartoons, if you ask for one. So, why not two cartoons this week, he thought. Jaka Bevk, our new cartoonist, has his opinon on the NSA and Snowden case as well. Click on the cartoon to see it in full size.
Today we welcome our new cartoonist, Jaka Bevk. Jaka is Slovenian and currently lives in Brussels. For our blog, Jaka will make a cartoon every two weeks about the world of European or international politics. You can check out his other work on his website, or his Facebook page! Today the first one: Croatia and the EU, a blessing?
Lobbying is a big issue in Europe. Questions have been raised about the influence of corporate lobbyists in Brussels. Here you can find an interesting interactive map of the buildings in Brussels where lobby firms reside.
We will talk with a lobbyist in about 2 weeks from now. Is lobbying wrong? No it isn’t, i guess. Is the amount of influence lobbyists have on the political process wrong? Maybe. But what amount is good then? None? 10, or 20 Percent? Can you even talk this way about lobbying and its influence?
Lots of questions. I started to make a list for myself. I want to know how a workday looks like. How do you interact with a politician? Etcetera.. Do you have a good question i can add to my list? Share it, and you will find your answer when i publish the convo. DM or Tweet via twitter @insideEUblog, comment, or send me an e-mail at insideeuropeblog [at] gmail.com.
