The European Consortium for Political Research Standing Group on Interest Groups promotes and supports research on group politics, civil society, social movement organizations and political advocacy. Membership of the SG is open to everyone who is interested in cumulative research on interest group politics. The SG functions largely as a forum and an exchange network for interest group researchers.

 The ECPR Standing Group on Interest Groups was founded at a workshop organized at the University of Syracuse (USA) in 2008. These scholars took the initiative to establish this ECPR standing group:
