The Bilderberger Group is a society for individually appointed authority persons from the whole world within the fields business, politics, mass media and academia. Each participant has become member after a personal invitation from the society.

The purpose of the society is to share information about international politics and disquss it. Even though it is never said openly, the group prabably also have the scope of making ageement upon goals on specific topics within international politics that the members then are adviced to work to fulfill within their societies and internationally.

The main activity of the society is a conference held at various hotels around the world. The conference is closed for non-members and all type of reporting to the common public from the conference is forbidden. Everything said and written within the conference and the activity of the society is secret. But the participants are allowed to use information obtained, wich must be interpreted as a symptom of obligations to work for specific political goals.

Even though media are not allowed to report from the meeting, top executives from mass media are well represented as participants in the conference. This of cource secures that the leading media will not write more about the conference than what is conveniant for this society.

It also secures that the Bilderberger society has an influence on media in general, so that they spread information to support the goals of the society and withhold information that goes against its goals.

The Bilderberger Group probably works in this way:

- A year or so before the next conference, some stearing board comes togeather and decides what shall be the topics of the next conference.

- For each topic one appoints a work group with a few Bilderberger members with special interest and international authority in the topic and a secretary.

- The work groups come together and prepare recommendations for each topic.

- At the next Bilderberger conference the recommendations for each topic are presented by the secretary for each work group in plenum.

- There is a short debate in plenum about each topic and the recommendations.

. After the conference each work group comes togeather again to prepare a inal version of the recommendations for each topic.

- After approval by the stearing board, the recommendations are sendt out to each of the participants in the conference.

- The participants will thereafter feel obliged to work for the fullfillment of the recommendations in his own society or in any international body where he or she has a membership or authority.

Even though no participant probably have a juridical duty to help fulfill the recommendations, such types of agreements still tends to give a strong feeling of duty to fulfill the agreed recommendations. Each participant may also feel a fair of losing privileges if he does not work for the fulfillment.

The participants at the Bilderberger meetings come from most countries in the World, but with some overweight of participants from USA. By looking at the official list of attendants, one easily gets the impression that one selects participants so that decisions made in each country and in each international body will be influenced as effectively as possible. Apart from top executives of industries and banks, and top politicians, there is also a substancial contigents of media executives and academic authorities, because these actually have a great impact on actual and future decicions in each country.

Special important leaders will probably after attending be member of the group also in the years to come and resceive reports like those attending the conference. Attendents with special capacities are probably also asked to take part in work groups to prepare and conclude from meetings to come, and also these will be permanent members. The mayority of attendants each year will probably not be permament members, since there will always be some of them that at one point will violate the demand for secrecy.

The Bildergerger Group offers a public list of participants, at least for some of the meetings, but one cannot be sure that those lists are comprehensive. Certain top politicians, military leaders and leaders of security sercices are probably left out from the list. These lists still gives some impression about what type of people that are invited to take part.
