Abstract: Large, multinational corporations are still performing vital gatekeeping functions in society including providing access to important economic, social and environmental information. It is suggested that, for various reasons, this access has worsened for many constituents. The geographic complexity of modern organizational structures is generally not matched by geographically differentiated disclosures of economic and social performance, interorganizational dependencies or socially important corporate events or plans. It is also posited that corporations have an inherent interest in 'disconnecting' information thereby restricting its usefulness. The project explores corporate disclosure strategies as they relate to geographic segmentation and consolidation of information.
