Public Affairs

You need

Your issues are not present in the public perception. our interests are not represented at all or not sufficiently in the legislative process in parliament. You are not familiar with the mechanics of federal legislation and implementation. You want professional representation of your interests, but you have no internal resources.

What is behind this?

Public affairs are the interaction of an association with its (political) environment. They can include monitoring or lobbying, i.e. influencing legislation (parliament) or its implementation (Federal Council and administration). This also includes public relations. Here, communication is often used to influence theimage and reputation of one’s own organization, in order to achieve the own goals. Issue management encompasses a wide range of activities related to a single issue. These activities might be monitoring, agenda setting, lobbying and public affairs, depending on the extent of the mandate.
