Borderless Politics: How & Why Do Large Firms Participate in Political Life?
Civil Society Workshop
20 January 2016, 2-4.30pm
The Foundry, 17 Oval Way, London SE11 5RR
Borderless Politics, a joint initiative of the universities of Aberdeen and Glasgow seeks to improve society’s understanding of how and why firms participate in public life by tracking the political behaviour of large transnational corporations across different activities (lobbying, campaign contributions and corporate social responsibility) and venues (national, European Union and United Nations).
The session will be an opportunity for civil society practictioners working on corporate accountability and transparency to discuss the project’s initial analysis and the implications for corporate disclosure in the UK and internationally.
