In the last decade, large area surveys (e.g., SDSS, 2dF, XMM-COSMOS) have significantly improved AGN clustering measurements. The analysis of clustering studies now provide tight constraints on the environment in which super-massive black hole accretion takes place. In my talk, I will give an elaborate and easy-to-follow introduction on what clustering measurements are and how they are performed. I will explain how we are able to measure AGN clustering at low redshift with an unprecedented precision and how we interpret these results. The results of a series of published papers on broad-line AGN clustering will be presented. Finally, I will conclude by giving an outlook of which data sets will be available for AGN clustering studies in the future.
