As a member of the international Amnesty movement, we abide by a formal system of accountability as set out in three key documents. These are the:
- Amnesty International Statute
- Amnesty International United Kingdom Section Constitution (PDF)
- Amnesty International UK Section Charitable Trust Constitution (PDF)
We also subscribe to the vision, mission and core values of the worldwide Amnesty movement.
Our accountability commitment: listening and responding to our stakeholders
As a campaigning organisation we work with a variety of groups including the individuals and communities we campaign with and for, our members, supporters, activists, partners, staff, volunteers and the general public. We are committed to strengthening our accountability and transparency to all of these stakeholders.
To us accountability is a continuous two-way process through which our stakeholders inform and participate in our decisions and activities, and by which we hold ourselves accountable to them for our performance and campaign outcomes.
We are committed to learning from feedback - we know that if we listen to our stakeholders our performance and effectiveness can be improved. Read our feedback policy and procedure. Tell us what you think about us - what we do, and how we do it.
How we ensure accountability
We are committed to meeting non-governmental organisation (NGO) best practice standards in transparency, operational excellence and public and stakeholder reporting.
Amnesty International is a signatory of Accountable Now (formerly known as International INGO Accountability Charter), a cross-sectoral platform of 25 international civil society organizations. Together, we strive to be transparent, responsive to stakeholders and focused on delivering impact.
Our former Open Information Policy is under review.
