Public affairs

Political and institutional developments at national, European and international levels are leading to a growing demand among organisations for advice in the field of public affairs. Applying for licences, communicating with legislators and participating in official consultations all require in-depth knowledge of both formal and informal political decision-making processes.

In this area, akkanto advises
and assists its clients with:

  • Designing and implementing programmes to inform and defend the interests of organisations with government officials and parliamentary committees at both regional and federal levels in Belgium, as well as with European Union and international institutions (editing position papers)
  • Monitoring and analysing social, economic and political contexts through detailed identification of potential adversaries and allies (stakeholder analysis , political mappings) and designing strategies to favourably influence the debate
  • Issues management through systematic analysis of factors that determine the context in which organisations operate such as environmental, (food) safety, mobility and healthcare issues and corporate governance
  • Coalition creation and relationship building by fostering dialogue with local stakeholders, national governments and international bodies, notably the Bretton Woods institutions
  • Management of dedicated interest groups
  • Media monitoring
