Who makes the decisions in the corporate world? Corporations – and more specifically their managers and shareholders – make decisions that affect us at every moment of our lives... without asking our opinion. This is the conclusion reached by a group of researchers from the world’s leading universities in Hé Patron – Pour une révolution dans l’entreprise. The goal of this collective work is to make democracy a reality in the workplace.

The book is written by Isabelle Ferreras, accompanied by ten academics, a writer and an illustrator.

The event will be attended by the authors:

Moderated by co-organizers:

  • Thomas Piketty, professor at the Paris School of Economics and director of studies at the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales
  • Christian Chavagneux, deputy editor-in-chief of Alternatives Economiques
