About us

"We are Amnesty International UK. We work to protect men, women and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied."

Amnesty International is the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation. It investigates and exposes abuse, educates and mobilises the public, and helps transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We are the perfect society for those interested in political campaigning and current affairs but without party political bias, or those who would like to pursue a career in the not-for-profit sector, become a political journalist, or simply wishes to meet like-minded people.

We are actively working as a society to involve members in decision making and campaign directions this year - so any ideas or comments, just drop us an email.


Amnesty International at RHUL operates a simple membership structure. Being a member of the society at Royal Holloway provides you with full membership to Amnesty UK and gives you voting rights at the national AGM.

We are one of over 100 student amnesty groups in the UK which raises awareness of Human Rights abuses. We hold bi-weekly meetings, socials and plan regular campaigns on campus. We regularly collaborate with other London universities to run campaigns in London.

We journey to Amnesty UK headquarters twice a year, where you can meet and network with staff and other student campaigners from all over the country.
