We are pleased to share with you a new paper titled "The Post-2015 Corporate Development Agenda: Expanding Corporate Power in the Name of Sustainable Development." The paper discusses how the corporate sector is trying to position itself front and center of the post-2015 development agenda by staking a claim at three levels: First, by setting goals that would suit their priorities for expansion; second, by claiming a primary role in mobilizing the means for implementing these goals; third, by shaping the governance framework that would be set-up to ensure progress in this agenda.
The paper warns that the danger lies not only in the failure of the post-2015 agenda to promote transformative change, but also in the prospect of rationalizing and legitimizing the further expansion of corporate power in the guise of promoting sustainability and addressing the needs of the poor.
