Omega Research Foundation
The Omega Research Foundation researches the human rights impact of international transfers of Military, Security and Police (MSP) technologies, ranging from small arms to large weapons systems, policing technologies, equipment used for torture, and the security infrastructure of repressive states. Campaigners and human rights defenders use Omega’s research to lobby governments to close the legal loopholes allowing states, traders and brokers to supply repressive technology to human rights abusers.
