Product description


'In these troubling times, we need effective citizen-lobbyists -- not just likers, followers or even marchers -- more than ever. No one has provided a more readable, persuasive and inspiring guide to how to be such a person than Alberto Alemanno. I have no hesitation in lobbying you to read this book.' (Bill Emmott Former editor in chief, The Economist, and chairman, The Wake Up Foundation)

‘A fresh and smart take on the challenges posed by the new forms of democratic engagement and participation’ (Enrico Letta)

Lobbying for Change unveils an inconvenient truth: it is not the interests of the few that are overrepresented but those of the many that are underrepresented in the policy process. This book provides a guide for citizens to act as an equalising force in today’s polarised society. An inspiring, timely and positive narrative of today’s state of democracy and an antidote to the trap of populism.’ (Pascal Lamy former Director of the World Trade Organisation and EU Commissioner for Trade)

‘Reviving civil society is a crucial task for today and tomorrow, and the strength of citizen lobbying is a vital indicator of civil society’s health. Alberto Alemanno has given us just what we need to guide us in this task – an intelligent, accessible and comprehensive handbook.’ (Michael Edwards editor of OpenDemocracy’s ‘Transformation’)

‘Lobbying for Change is the antidote to what ails us: moving would-be change makers beyond “clicktivism” and the occasional march to by a step-by-step guide to get active in shaping the future you want to see.’ (Gillian Caldwell CEO, Global Witness)

‘The nexus of citizens and technology can form a “fifth estate”, a force for progressive change that will ultimately change politics itself for the better. A must read to understand the future of governance.’ (Parag Khanna author of Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization)

‘Many people feel powerless and believe the system is rigged against them. While the likes of Trump, Farage and Le Pen want to tear down the system in the name of “the people”, Alberto Alemanno has a much more positive solution. A must-read in these troubled times.’ (Philippe Legrain political economist and writer)

‘An easy read packed with powerful insights from both academic research as well as the author’s personal experience, Lobbying for Change will give you all the tools you need to make your voice heard and make a lasting difference.’ (Manuel Arriaga author of Rebooting Democracy)

‘Celebrating the spirit of the Sustainable Development Goals, Alberto Alemanno's book is an unparalleled guide for true citizen engagement with youth at the focal point.’ (Trisha Shetty)

‘This is an essential guidebook for navigating the new political landscape. Alberto sets out the tools that citizens will need to fix broken politics and power a new participation revolution.’ (Danny Sriskandarajah, director of CIVICUS Alliance)

About the Author

A Professor of European Union Law at the HEC Paris and Global Professor of Law at the New York University School of Law, he is also a Co-Founder and Director of The Good Lobby, which forges partnerships to lobby for the public interest.
