Warning! As of 20 September 2021, the EU lobby register has changed format. Temporarily, the register is no longer providing daily data updates of all lobby data which means that the figures on LobbyFacts cannot currently be kept up-to-date. If, for example, you see a company, trade association, or lobby consultancy with "no figure available" for EU lobby costs, open the data card, and click the link to the EU lobby register where you will find the updated registration including EU lobby costs declaration. Regretably, under the lobby register format, NGOs and think tanks are no longer required to provide a figure for EU lobby costs. We will update LobbyFacts with the new data as soon as possible.

Goals / Remit

IBON International is a service institution with an international character and scope of work. We aim to contribute to building global mass movements of oppressed and marginalised peoples, to challenging neoliberal globalisation, war and all forms of oppression, and to advancing people’s individual and collective rights, democracy, social justice and equality, ecological sustainability and liberation. We advocate social justice and social transformation through knowledge building, knowledge sharing, and by performing a broad range of related capacity development functions. In our advocacy, we cooperate mainly with social movements and civil society constituencies in all regions of the world, especially in the global South and among marginalised groups. We work with a broad range of CSOs, directly and through networks and partnerships, in building consensus on development issues. We help them bring this consensus to wider global arenas through engagement in international processe (...)


IBON International, with the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE), continued to monitor EU initiatives and policies on development cooperation, such as in engaging at the Global Conference of the EU Policy Forum on Development and the European Commission's 2019 European Development Days. The organization is also active in engaging development cooperation issues in policy-making bodies and processes where the EU is active, such as the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC), the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD-DAC), and Agenda 2030-related processes. In 2019, IBON International and CPDE participated in the Stockholm Civil Society Days, OECD DAC-CSO Reference Group Meeting in Paris, Busan Global Partnership Forum, and continued its engagement with the GPEDC Steering Committee in Seoul. We enhanced our partnerships and collaboration in advancing our work around shrinking space and enabling environment for CSOs. Our developing work on the effectiveness agenda relating to the "nexus" issues on the convergence of humanitarian, migration, climate, conflict, and fragility proved its relevance with the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic. IBON International is also engaged in the EU members' positions on issues of human rights violations and shrinking spaces, including with regards to the human rights situation in the Philippines where the central offices of IBON International are headquartered.
