The Corporation is capitalism's preeminent institution, dominating our economy, distorting our politics and reshaping society. TNI's ninth flagship State of Power report delves deep into the changing nature of the corporation in a time of digitalisation and financialisation and asks how we might best confront its power and construct alternatives.
This corporate schmooze-fest takes place every year, making grand pronouncements on the state of the world and treated with reverence by political elites and disdain by most progressive movements. But is it more than an elite talking shop? This reading list explores some of the agendas and ethos underlying the World Economic Forum.
The World Economic Forum that meets in Davos annually is more than an elite talk-shop or trade show. It has also been the birthplace of many neoliberal policies and programmes including the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). In recent years, the World Economic Forum has openly pushed to replace the multilateral form of governance with a multistakeholder approach, in which corporations play a more significant role.

The rise of authoritarian populism continues. Now the UK has a fully signed-up version in its new right-wing government, with allies in Trump, Modi, Bolsarano, Orban and others. It is a dangerous, but perhaps inevitable, trend.
The ostensible cause and common focus of the remarkable popular upsurge throughout India---the biggest and most sustained mass agitations since Modi was elected in 2014 (and re-elected in 2019)---is the opposition to the Citizen’s Amendment Act (CAA) and its associated National Citizens Register (NRC) that is to follow in due course.
In 2019 we saw some of the largest marches ever organised, the demise of decades old dictatorships, global inequality under the spotlight like never before, and a growing demand for fundamental systemic change. Here are twelve movements that inspired us in 2019.
Rakhine State, historically known as Arakan, represents the post-colonial failures of Myanmar in microcosm: ethnic conflict, political impasse, militarisation, economic neglect and the marginalisation of local peoples. During the past decade, many of these challenges have gathered a new intensity, accentuating a Buddhist-Muslim divide and resulting in one of the greatest refugee crises in the modern world. A land of undoubted human and natural resource potential, Rakhine State has become one of the poorest territories in the country today.
