Omega works to ensure that the trade in weapons and equipment used for torture and oppression is closed down for good, and works to increase transparency and improve controls on the trade and use of military, security and police equipment worldwide.
25 years of specialist research and investigation has generated an unrivalled source of evidence on the manufacture and trade of equipment used for torture and repression. We uncover evidence to highlight loopholes or breaches of trade laws and share this information with the media, our partners and human rights bodies. We have produced 22 reports with Amnesty International since 2001, which have helped change laws governing the trade in weapons and equipment for torture and repression. Amnesty’s international reputation and its network of activists help our investigative research to reach a global audience and have a greater impact than we could achieve alone.
Our partnerships help to deliver campaigns to control the trade of equipment used for repression; force governments to changes laws; hold corporations and individuals to account and secure justice for survivors of torture.
We can only continue this work with the generosity of individual supporters and grants from trusts and other human rights funders. Omega does not accept any funding from companies or other organisations that could compromise our independence.
