The essential guide to making real change in your community, society or country.

Many democratic societies are experiencing a crisis of faith. Citizens are making clear their frustration with their supposedly representative governments, which instead seem driven by the interests of big business, powerful individuals and wealthy lobby groups.

But what can we do about it? How do we fix democracy and get our voices heard?

The answer, argues Alberto Alemanno, is to become change-makers - citizen lobbyists. By using our skills and talents and mobilizing others, we can bring about social and political change. Whoever you are, you've got power, and this book will show you how to unleash it.

If you're looking to improve - or to join - your community, if you're searching for a sense of purpose or a way to take control of what's going on around you, switching off is no longer an option. It's time to make your voice count.

About the Author

Alberto Alemanno is an academic, public interest lawyer and civic advocate. 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.

Industry Reviews

`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 *

`Lobbying for Change inspires us to take back control of our own lives by challenging received notions of policy-making. In a graceful and easy-to-read style full of practical detail, Alemanno has presented the case to engage and shown all of us just how easy it is.'

-- Ed Rekosh
