Une introduction au concept de " stratégie politique d'entreprise" Une étude du lobbying pratique par les entreprises en France.

Abstract : The aim of this exploratory research is to study lobbying, from a strategic management point of view, such as practised by corporations, both within France and at an european union level. On the one hand, it is a question of analysing the nature and the extent of the integration of lobbying in firms' strategies, as well as the managerial consequences of this. On the other hand, it is a question of identifying the specific features of a practice conditioned by the institutional context in wich it developps. The thesis is divided into four parts. The first parts provides a presentation of lobbying as a socio-political phenomenon, and of the concept of "corporate politiacl strategy". This notion allows us to bring togheter the pratices of lobbying and of strategic management. In the second part, we propose a conceptual framework of corporate lobbying. Lobbying is interpreted as the product of competitive, agency and influence relations between the corporation and the economic, social and political stakeholders, and the implementation of wich depends on the mobilisation of political ressources. The results of empirical observations are presented in the third part. To start with, the analysis of the systems of representation of lobbying parties, as well as the "public affairs" departments, wich certain corporations have at their disposition, allows us to caracterise the context in wich corporate political activities develop. The study of five real cases wich follows allows us to apprehend the processes of lobbying "in concrete". The fourth part is reserved for theoretical and practical lessons wich may be drawn from this exploratory study.
