Open Markets Institute

The Open Markets Institute is a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that works to address threats to democracy, individual liberties, and national security from today’s unprecedented levels of corporate concentration and monopoly power. The Open Markets team of journalists, lawyers, and activists is widely recognized as the vanguard, in the words of the Financial Times, in “driving the debate” around both the nature of the threat posed by concentrated power and what to do about it. Open Markets uses research and journalism to expose the dangers of monopolization and identifies changes in policy and law to address them. Open Markets also engages with and educates leading policymakers, law enforcers, academics, movement groups, and other influential stakeholders on how to restore the market structures and corporate regulations that long formed the bedrock of American democracy. Open Markets also operates the Center for Journalism & Liberty, which is part of the Knight Research Network.
