Corporate Europe Observatory

Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) is an Amsterdam and Brussels-based research and campaign group targeting the damaging social and environmental impacts of corporate lobbying in Europe. To highlight these problems, CEO publishes well-documented research-based reports and organises outreach events like the now well-known guided tours through the Brussels EU quarter and the annual 'Worst EU Lobbying' Awards (jointly with three other watchdog groups). SRT's current grant to CEO supports a research report into the role of public relations and lobbying companies in bolstering the reputations of repressive regimes.
