Corporate Europe Observatory

Exposing the power of corporate lobbying in the EU

Europe inc.

Europe Inc., published in 2000 by Pluto Press (2nd edition in 2003) in association with Corporate Europe Observatory, provides a unique and comprehensive overview of the systematic ways in which transnational corporations – working through lobby groups – have succeeded in influencing a wide range of policies of the EU and other international institutions, such as the OECD, WTO and the United Nations. The authors cover the major players in these anti-democratic practices and analyse the structural and political factors which have enabled transnational corporations to become such a dominant force in politics.
