In 2012, I proposed to the Transnational Institute that it develop an annual encyclopedia on global power to support its work of equipping social movements with ideas and analysis. I have since coordinated and led on each edition, trialling new ideas and concepts, and turning ‘State of Power’ into the institute’s flagship project.


  • 6 State of Power reports released praised for their essays and infographics. Downloaded by 15,000 people each year
  • Infographics on wealth and corporate power copied and used by movements worldwide
  • High-profile interviews with Yanis Varoufakis, Susan George, Ahdaf Soueif
  • Digital long-read essays trialled successfully in 2017
