  • PODER: The Project on Organizing, Development, Education, and Research (PODER)® is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve corporate transparency and accountability in Latin America from a human rights perspective and to strengthen civil society stakeholders of corporations as long-term accountability guarantors. The main problem PODER seeks to address is state capture, whereby an economic and political elite controls public decision-making and effectively limits the realization of sustainable capitalism and democracy for the rest of society. Consequently, PODER believes the rule of law and fledgling democratic mechanisms fail to hold elites accountable. Therefore, it is up to citizens, their communities, and civil society advocates to pressure government and corporate actors in order to right the imbalance of power. PODER advances this work through four main strategies: strategic corporate research, capacity building and accompaniment, advocacy and transparency technologies.
