We are a non-governmental organization who concerns human rights.
Since its establishment in 1961, Amnesty International (AI) has grown to become a global non-governmental organization (NGO) with 2.8 million members and offices in 150 countries and regions. In 1977, it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “having contributed to securing the ground for freedom, for justice, and thereby also for peace in the world”. Its International Secretariat is stationed in London.
By undertaking research, action and education, AI works to promote human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.
We send researchers around the globe to document cases of human rights violations. Their findings and observations will be published to the international community. The international movement will be mobilized to exert pressure on the violators so as to curb further abuses.
