Matt Kennard is an investigative journalist, co-founder of Declassified UK, and co-author of the brand new book Silent Coup: How Corporations Overthrew Democracy.

Silent Coup is an investigative work by journalists Claire Provost and Matt Kennard, examining the rise of global corporate power amidst the decline of European empires in the 20th century. Rather than a resurgence of democracy, the authors reveal an insidious corporate takeover that has shaped resource allocation, governance, and justice worldwide. Drawing on reports from 30 countries, the book uncovers the creation of a supranational legal framework resistant to democratic influence, while highlighting the media’s failure to scrutinize this development.
