This is especially interesting since the influence of lobbyism on German politics has become more and more clear recently. More transparency in this issue is crucial. Germany is one of the few countries in the world that has not ratified the United Nations Convention on Corruption (UNCAC) which is mainly because of a lack of law enforcement in the field of bribery of members of parliament.
