Seminar with John Murray from University of Sydney
Corporations and the Public Sphere - A Policy Contest through Mass Media
Seminar with John Murray from University of Sydney on December 11
The talk illustrates the possibility for corporations to influence public policy and contributes to existing accounts of how corporations shape the regulatory environment in which they operate by identifying the discursive strategies employed in linking corporate concerns with particular identities and demands. This potentially changes the public sphere as an intermediate between corporations, citizens and government.
John Murray, PhD, is from University of Sydney, and will be taking up a post-doctoral position at Stockholm Business School in January 2015. John's research investigates corporate political activity and advocacy, political CSR and corporate citizenship.
Discussant: Glen Whelan (University of Nottingham and Copenhagen Business School)
