Pédagogie et dilemmes de l'enseignement de l'éthique du lobbying

Abstract : Since the theoretical and practical relations between lobbying and ethics are complex to grasp, teaching ethical lobbying is a challenge. A pluralistic methodology led to explore the pedagogical practices and dilemmas met when teaching the ethics of lobbying. Based on a conceptual analysis of lobbying as a sector of activity and a set of practices and techniques aimed to influence political decision-making processes, ethics courses appeal to lobbying students. However, there are very few such courses in French Master level training programs, and the term itself appears seldom in their brochures and web-sites. Yet, students prove to be keen on asking questions and getting answers on that matter during all courses of such programs. The pedagogy of the relations between lobbying and ethics is complex because it should meet students’ expectations to learn the legal framework, the codes of conducts, as well as the do and the don’t that drive from social norms, whereas teachers should recall that values are subjective and that one should be pragmatic when one meets ethical dilemmas in his daily work.
