How Lobbying Can be a Force for Good
I recently had the chance to give a couple of interviews about my new book Lobbying for Change: Find Your Voice to Create a Better Society.
With Times Higher Education we discussed the role of citizen lobbyists, and in particular the image of academics who engage into lobbying activities. I argued that ‘lobbyist for hire’ undermine academic authority. You can check it out here.
Democratic Audit, an independent research unit based at the Public Policy Group in the LSE’s Government Department, asked me what initially brought me to write the book and to what extent being an active citizen implies lobbying for change. The interview is available here.
