I'm Amnesty's Refugee and Migrant Rights Programme Director, and I've worked in immigration and asylum law since 1999.
Shao Jiang, a former prisoner of conscience for his active role in the 1989 pro-democracy movement, is a committed activist-scholar, who lives and works in exile in London. The academic interests focus on politics and media, social movement, democratisation, feminism, law in PRC and Hong Kong, autonomy & sovereignty & self-determination, international Human Rights mechanisms, comparative studies on development models and political institutions, theory and practice of Civil Society. Publications include Citizen Publications in China before the Internet (Palgrave, 2015).
I'm the Director of Amnesty International UK. As well as my work leading one of the largest Amnesty sections, I have the privilege of meeting human rights activists across the world as part of our research and lobbying missions, most recently in Afghanistan, Kenya and Egypt.
