The resources and channels of influence of farmers’ associations - evidence from Poland

This paper aims to contribute to the existing studies on interest groups’ influence on agricultural policies. The article uses a survey conducted with leaders and members of farmers’ associations to assess the tangible and intangible resources of these organizations in Poland, as well as the channels they use to influence agricultural policy. The results show that farmers’ associations in Poland may influence agricultural policy only to a small degree. This results from their insufficient resources, especially those that are useful for politicians (e.g. expert knowledge). The second obstacle stems from the lack of unity and cooperation between these associations.
