Covid-19 has been accompanied by a high level of lobbying activity as businesses and interest groups seek to influence the policies employed by governments to manage the economic fallout of the outbreak. Drawing on new research, Anne Rasmussen explains how lobbying has changed during the pandemic. She writes that while the relative access of different group types to Covid-19 meetings looks similar to other topics, the format of lobbying activities, notably the greater use of digital lobbying, could affect potential biases in the representation of different types of interest group.
