Position Description

Amnesty International is a global human rights movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in over 150 countries. Staff at the International Secretariat conduct research, develop policy and engage in legal analysis, standard setting projects and campaigning on the full range of civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. We believe that human rights abuses anywhere are the concern of people everywhere. Amnesty International’s vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards. The policy analyst will contribute to research and advocacy projects in Amnesty’s Freedom of Expression pathway, with particular focus on women’s health and reproductive rights, especially the human rights impact of punitive policies regulating sexuality and reproduction. The analyst will support and build upon existing human rights initiatives (particularly through advocacy and other strategic initiatives) and aid civil society partners who have engaged in such advocacy for decades.
