Stakeholder Democracy Network (SDN) was established as a non-governmental not-for-profit organisation in 2004 to support those affected by the extractives industry and weak governance.

POLICY ALERT @PolicyAlert
We join other transparency, anti-corruption and open data organizations from across Europe to demand that the EU Commission and member states make beneficial ownership data publicly available without restrictions. #OpenData #OpenOwnership
