Democracy is fundamental to Amnesty International’s identity, legitimacy and values. It’s therefore important that we make it as easy as possible for our members to take part in the democratic decisions of Amnesty UK - decisions that will be made at this year's Annual General Meeting in April.
We know that some of you might want to find out more about the resolutions or exchange thoughts with other members before coming to the Meeting or registering your proxy votes. So, this year we’re trying something new.
We are posting two blogs that explain the Special Resolutions to be considered at this year’s AGM so that you, as members, can discuss them. Our aim is to further encourage participation and informed decision-making.
This is an experiment and we need to take little steps at first. Unfortunately, that means we can’t open all of this year’s resolutions up for discussion. However, if it seems there’s an appetite for this kind of platform then the lessons we learn over the next couple of weeks will help us plan for the future.
Let us know what you think. And please do take a few moments to engage with our blogs.
