Corporate Rule, which is intend to be a dynamic showcase for some of the best independent, corporate-critical research about corporate power today, sparking debate and provoking action. Corporate Rule is essentially a web-based resource featuring new and old research into the relationships between corporations and various social, economic and political structures and institutions. The project aims to explore the mechanisms deployed by corporations in exercising and accumulating their power over the decisions made in what are often called 'democratic' countries, with a specific focus on how this plays out in the UK, as well as the ways in which corporate ideologies and discourses facilitate this by co-opting and/or suppressing people's active democratic participation. (For more, see the general intro.) The project also highlights alternatives to this mode of living and organising, providing examples of real democracy in action and looking at ways forward in opposing corporate rule. Some of the content might be published in the future as a series of topical briefings. (To find out more about the project, please see the about page.) Contributions welcome! We have populated the website with some initial articles, case studies and reading lists on the various topics that the project covers. But this is no-where near the final content that we would like to see on the site. So if you have produced any relevant articles, reports, films or case studies, or if you know of any good resources that we have not included, please drop us a line. We are also endeavouring to include as much new research and writing on corporate rule as possible. So if you have time and energy to contribute, or are already working on a relevant piece, please consider sharing it with us. The site will have a wide readership in the UK and beyond and could be a way for you to reach a wider audience interested in your topic. All content will be fully referenced and credited. Please send your contributions to corporaterule[at-]corporatewatch.org.
