Title

Barricades and Boardrooms: A Contemporary History of the Corporate Accountability Movement

Author

Bendell, Jem

Description

This paper discusses the origin of the modern corporation, and the way that it has shaped various dimensions of modern life through influence over governments and media. The paper chronicles the failure of various national and international attempts to restrict the growth of this power during the twentieth century, in order to locate a discussion of recent events. It argues that the growth of a global civil society in the last decades has created a new context, and a new opportunity to address the problem of corporate power.
