Event Event Name:Out-of-the-Box Thinking: Democracy Is For People & Not Corporations Event Summary:For the fourth of our Out-of-the-Box Thinking series, co-hosted by GlobalNet21 and Conway Hall, join us for a discussion with Nick Dearden, Simon Franks, Dr Anne Daguerre and Professor Des Freedman about how our democracy can be undermined by corporate power and elite domination. Unless we correct this then democracy will exist but in name only. Event Description:We often look on Multinational corporations as being agents that lobby government as do other organisations in civil society. However in reality they belong on the inside. They are part of the nexus of power that creates policy. They face no significant resistance, from either government or opposition, as their interests have now been woven into the fabric of all three main political parties in Britain.

And because they are intrinsic to all main political parties their influence on democracy is not discussed in Parliament. But that is what we wish to discuss at this meeting.

Does a state-corporate nexus of power bypass democracy and make a mockery of the voting process as corporations buy political favours and eat into our public services without redress?

If so then how can we remedy this and bring democracy back to the people rather than see it in the hands of a self-perpetuating power elite?

This will be the basis of this discussion with ample time for audience questions and comments as part of the evening.
