Corporate Constructions of Transnational Policy

I’m drawing attention to this in part because it’s an interesting example of corporate shaping of policy — Stephen Ball does brilliant work on the ways corporations (or rather assemblages of corporations, entrepreneurs, foundations, governments, academics, and others) are producing, marketing, and selling commodified education policy.  This is another form of commodifying and mobilizing policy in the form of language bundles or discursive reservoirs:

“EU Data Law Draft Uses Language — word-for-word — From US, EU Corporations”

The other reason I’m drawing attention to it is to highlight the interesting work done to bring this to light:  The report the story refers to is online at http://www.lobbyplag.eu/#/compare/overview — and it’s worth glancing at lobbyplag’s blog too.
