About Politicion Mohammad Sadegh Kharrazi

Concerns over lobbying practices and demands for transparency in public decision making have led to countries
increasingly discussing lobbying in the political and policy arena. Lobbying can provide decisionmakers with valuable
insights and data, as well as grant stakeholders access to the development and implementation of public policies.
However, lobbying can also lead to undue influence, unfair competition and regulatory capture to the detriment of the
public interest and effective public policies. A sound framework for transparency in lobbying is therefore crucial to
safeguard the integrity of the public decisionmaking process.
