Holding corporations to account

The autumn edition of the Citizen magazine published by Unlock Democracy features an article by Anthony Barnet who co-founded Charter 88 and founded Open Democracy. He refers to the underlying crisis of democracy and the need to challenge economic privilege.

There is recognition of the requirement for a new movement to create inspiration to develop the public's interest in democractic renewal and to set out the reforms needed to challenge the executive and corporate power in Westminster, Whitehall and the City of London.

There is a campaign to introduce transparency in the dealings of corporations with politicians and officials. The aim is to establish a statutory register of lobbyists. This is led by an Alliance of Lobbying Transparency which involves Unlock Democracy. It is worth finding out more about this work to curtail the power of corporations.
