This research is conceived as a prolongation of a global project refering Spanish business interest associations. In this particular case is pretended the study of the business association's influence in the decision-making processes. We will carry out a comparative study concerning the sectorial and territorial criteria in orther to evaluate the capacity of movilization and colective action. For this purpose we will take into acount the neocorporatist concepts: the logic of the influence and the logic of membership. Finally, we will make atention a selection of sectorial policies so as to analyse the interaction of business associations in their colective strategies. We will focus on European lobbying in order to explain business self-regulation strategies at sectorial level.
