Sammanfattning

In recent decades, the emergence and development of pan-European
civil society organisations have been prominent, including those representing
interests of marginalised groups and raising related social issues. Typically composed of national and European level umbrella organisations, some of these
organisations have grown as important interlocutors between EU institutions and
civil society, and derive legitimacy for their advocacy and lobbying activities by
claiming broad representativeness. Through a comparative study of five principal
EU-based civil society organisations, the present article analyses how these
organisations, operating at multiple levels with their membership based on extensive
geographical areas, acquire internal representation of members and beneficiaries.
