Christina Garsten and Adrienne Sörbom

Departing from an interest in the involvement of business leaders in the sphere of politics, in the broad sense, Garsten and Sörbom analyse the role of business within the World Economic Forum (WEF). Many global business leaders today do much more than engage narrowly in the own corporation and its search for profit, and the WEF is one arena through which firms act to advance their interests, financial as well as political. The chapter indicates a number of conduits through which business may draw upon the WEF and its platforms for their non-market interests. However, the WEF cannot merely be conceived as the extended voice of corporations. The WEF also makes use of the corporations to organize and expand its own agency. Garsten and Sörbom introduce the notion of policy bricolage as a way to capture the ambiguous, creative and agile role of WEF and its relation to corporations.

Power, Policy and Profit

Corporate Engagement in Politics and Governance

Edited by Christina Garsten and Adrienne Sörbom

Power, Policy and Profit investigates the manifold ways in which corporate actors attempt to broadly influence political activities. With intensified globalization of markets, the restructuring of provisions of welfare services and accumulation of private capital opportunities for corporate influence in politics affairs have multiplied. Bringing together scholars from different fields in the study of global governance, the volume addresses the rising influence and power of corporate actors on the national and transnational political scene.
