About the Influence Industry Project

Political influence is conducted through an industry of consultants, technology companies, and platforms. The role of the industry in politics is extensive, shrouded in mystery, and can have serious consequences for our political experience and consequently social and economic life.

The Influence Industry Project supports civil society to respond to the influence industry through three areas of work. Firstly, we share research and case studies detailing how political influence takes place worldwide. Secondly, through our learning hub and workshops, we provide a guided tour of research, frameworks and skills to build the capacity of professionals monitoring, regulating or otherwise working on political influence. Finally, we support the engagement of concerned citizens by developing resources on digital and political literacy. All of our published research, audio and visual materials, and commentary are also available on the resources page.
