HOW WE ARE RUN

We are a democratic, self-governing movement. Major policy decisions are taken by an International Council made up of representatives from all national sections.

Our national sections and local volunteer groups are primarily responsible for funding the movement. No funds are sought or accepted from governments for AI’s work investigating and campaigning against human rights violations. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion, and are funded mainly by our membership and public donations.
