The Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO)
SOMO investigates multinationals. Independent, factual, critical and with a clear goal: a fair and sustainable world, in which public interests outweigh corporate interests. SOMO conducts action-oriented research to expose the impact and unprecedented power of multinationals and show the underlying structures that enable them. Cooperating with hundreds of organisations around the world, SOMO ensures that information arrives where it has the most impact: from communities and courtrooms to civil society organisations, media and politicians.
As a centre of knowledge on key issues, SOMO drives analysis and pursues strategies aimed at social and sustainable change. SOMO works on this in five programme teams: Economic justice, Sustainable supply chains, Natural resources and Rights, remedy and accountability.
