In the modern history it is almost impossible to exist ignoring others around you or isolate from the rest of the world. Even if we see some examples, this practice seems to be lamentable. States have to co-exist, help each other or, at least to be able to benefit from any kind of connection or relations. At the same time some countries have problems that cannot be solved. It might be political, economic or cultural issues. So if they haven’t been solved, it might mean that some forces do not let it happen. In this case the country needs to get support from others. For this purposes, political representation abroad is being used. States have to lead strong campaigns abroad, and lobbing is one of its forms. Term of lobby originated in monastery in XVI century and from Medieval Latin laubia, lobia meant "covered walk in a monastery‖. Meaning ―large entrance hall in a public building‖ is from 1590s1. According to the BBC, the term ―lobbying‖ comes from the gathering of Members of Parliament and peers in the hallways (or lobbies) of Houses of Parliament before and after parliamentary debates2.Only in the early XIX century, the term ―lobbyism‖ got modern meaning.
