AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL is a global movement  dedicated to ending grave abuses of human rights and getting justice for those whose rights have been violated.

We investigate and expose the facts,

whenever and wherever abuses happen. We lobby governments, and other powerful groups such as companies. Making sure they keep their promises and respect international law.

we mobilize millions of supporters around the world

to campaign for change and to stand in defence of activists on the frontline. We support people to claim their rights through education and training.

We are independent

of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion, being funded mainly by our membership and public donations. We rely on the time and energy given freely by members in solidarity with those suffering from human rights violations.

We are a campaigning organisation that takes practical, effective action. But more than that, we’re a worldwide community of people who take injustice personally.

We are driven by 6 core values


International solidarity


The universality and indivisibility of human rights


Effective action for the individual victim


Impartiality and independence


Global coverage


Democracy and mutual respect

The world we work in.

That’s why people are the most important thing to Amnesty:

We are not us, the organisation, we are you, we are each and every person who supports what we do.
