The Project on Organizing, Development, Education, and Research (PODER)® (www.projectpoder.org) is a non-governmental, non-profit regional organization founded in 2010 whose mission is to improve corporate transparency and accountability in Latin America from a human rights perspective and to strengthen civil society actors affected by corporate practices as long term accountability guarantors. The main problem PODER addresses 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. PODER believes that existing mechanisms fail to hold elites accountable and, therefore, it is in the hands of citizens, communities, and civil society organizations to pressure corporate and government actors so as to right the imbalance of power. The main strategies PODER utilizes to accomplish its mission are strategic research, community organizing, advocacy, and the development of transparency technologies. PODER believes that in order to achieve greater corporate transparency and accountability in Latin America it is necessary to catalyze a regional citizen-led movement.
