Turning the state into a business (AARG)

When: Wednesday, April 13, 2022, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Where: Online, Zoom

Speaker: Dr Christine Cooper

Join Zoom meeting:

"If one meets a powerful person – Rupert Murdoch, perhaps, or Joe Stalin or Hitler – one can ask five questions: what power do you have; where did you get it; in whose interests do you exercise it; to whom are you accountable; and, how can we get rid of you? Anyone who cannot answer the last of those questions does not live in a democratic system." Tony Benn (1998)

The quote above from Labour MP Tony Benn strikes at the heart of the concern of this paper surrounding “democratic accountability” – the ability of the people in a democratic system to hold government to account.

This seminar will be presented by Dr Christine Cooper. The event will be hosted by Dr Claudine Grisard.
