LobbyControl is a civil society initiative that provides information on lobbying, PR campaigns and think tanks and promotes transparency and democracy in Germany and on the European level. LobbyControl was founded in 2005 and is a registered non-profit organisation. We are a part of the European Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation (ALTER-EU).

Our website is in German only, sorry. This page only intends to give some basic data on our structure and finances in English. English information on our work on the European level can be found on the ALTER-EU website. You will also find us in the transparency register of the European Commission and European Parliament.
