We test two theories which shed doubt on whether vitality rates of interest groups are explained by individual incentives, namely, the political opportunity structure and population ecology theory. Based on an analysis of the energy policy and higher education policy organizations active on the national level in Hungary, Poland and Slovenia, we find that while the period of democratic and economic transition indeed opened up the opportunity structure for organizational formations, it by no means presented a clean slate. Communist-era successor and splinter organizations survived the collapse of communism, and all three countries entered transition with relatively high density rates in both organizational populations. We also find partial support for the density dependence hypothesis. Surprisingly, the EU integration process, the intensity of legislative activity, and media attention do not seem to have meaningfully influenced founding rates in the two populations.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/50042.4"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Železnik, Ana</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2021-11</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Dobbins, Michael</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Czarnecki, Szczepan</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Železnik, Ana</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/50042.4/3/Labanino_2-yz2uslexr2mx9.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Labanino, Rafael Pablo</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Labanino, Rafael Pablo</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
