Un lobby est une structure organisée pour représenter et défendre les intérêts d’un groupe donné en exerçant des pressions ou influences sur des personnes ou institutions détentrices de pouvoir. Le lobbying consiste ainsi en des interventions destinées à influencer directement ou indirectement l’élaboration, l’application ou l’interprétation de mesures législatives, normes, règlements et plus généralement, toute intervention ou décision des pouvoirs publics. Ainsi, le rôle d’un lobby est d’infléchir une norme, d’en créer une nouvelle ou de supprimer des dispositions existantes.
