Conflict Lobbying in the United States

March 31, 2020

Graphic for Takeaway titled: Lobbying Battles in the Libyan War

Millions of dollars are spent each year by foreign governments and rebel groups trying to influence the US government.

COLLEGE STATION, Mar. 31, 2020 -

In the latest issue of The Takeaway, Lobbying Battles in the Libyan War, Bush School of Government & Public Service faculty member Reyko Huang uses the Libyan war lobby to illustrate how, and why, both foreign governments and their armed opponents actively lobby the US government. She points out that millions of dollars are spent each year on US law firms and PR companies by foreign governments and rebel groups.

Huang also warns that although lobbyists must regularly disclose their work to the US Justice Department, data on conflict lobbying are inadequately collected and difficult to analyze. She makes the case that foreign lobbying is significant and deserving of more attention from academics and policymakers.

The Takeaway is a publication of the Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics, and Public Policy at the Bush School of Government & Public Service at Texas A&M University.
