Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO)
My thematic focus is on:
1. Exposing the use of shell companies and the corporate form in general to avoid regulation (tax, labour rights, legal liability in general). Do you have case studies that need further research? Think of labour exploitation, recruitment agencies, using letterboxes to circumvent the Posting of Workers Directive, etc. SOMO might be able to play a role in research, networking and outreach.
2. A new project of ours is focusing on megaprojects, in Indonesia (harbour and land reclamation), India, Brazil (harbour and canal), Congo (energy). If you're working on corproate accountability issues cross-border, we're interested to exchange ideas and research!
