Where we work
Amnesty International has a presence in over 150 countries around the world. Our global teams bring torturers to justice, change oppressive laws and free people jailed just for voicing their opinion.
Around the world we stand with people and communities who come under attack, encourage governments and others to respect human rights and raise awareness of the international standards that protect us all.
Around the globe
How we work in a crisis
Whether it’s the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria, the jailing of peaceful activists in Malaysia, or imminent executions in the Asia Pacific, Amnesty is ready to help individuals at serious risk of human rights abuses.
When a crisis occurs, our researchers can be on the ground within days, taking testimony and delivering first hand reports. We gather the evidence as situations escalate and ensure our supporters and the wider community are informed and ready to act.
Our international campaigns
How we protect human rights
Rights belong to every one of us – but are abused or denied every single day. When this happens, we search out the facts, expose what’s happening and rally people together to pressure governments and others to respect human rights.
