Geographical remit: 


Omega is an independent research organisation. 

We are dedicated to providing rigorous, objective, evidence-based research on the manufacture, trade in, and use of, military, security and police (MSP) technologies.  

This research has been used to develop and monitor effective trade controls and standards on the manufacture, trade, and use of MSP equipment; hold governments to account for the transfers they authorise; challenge questionable transfers of MSP equipment; educate policy makers, journalists & human rights monitors, amongst others; and provide redress for torture survivors.


We aim to:

  • Monitor the international MSP trade in the pursuit of transparency and accountability;
  • Provide campaigning organisations with timely and accurate case study information to lobby for tougher controls on international MSP transfers;
  • Work with NGOs and media agencies to expose companies and governments that flout regulations on transfers of arms and security equipment; and
  • Provide torture survivor support groups with the information that allows them to seek legal redress from the companies producing such equipment.
