The language of this session is English. How can lobbying adapt in habits and norms to the digitalisation of the sphere? In the context caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it remains vital that a constructive dialogue between policymakers and societal stakeholders can continue. In this panel debate, bringing together speakers from the worlds of business, civil society and political institutions, we discuss how COVID-19 has impacted the nature of interactions between political decision-makers and private stakeholders, and promote ideas for strengthening lobby transparency and integrity, particularly in the context of increased remote meetings. • Daniel Freund, Member of European Parliament (MEP) for the Greens • María Rosa Rotondo, President of Public Affairs Community of Europe (PACE) • dr.
