ASSESSING AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL'S IMPACT

What difference does Amnesty International make in the world?

Amnesty International works to promote and defend human rights. To do this successfully, we need to continuously measure our effectiveness and look at ways we can improve.

We create and apply various systems and methodologies to assess the nature of our impact on human rights globally. These tools work at different levels. They enable us to be accountable to the victims of human rights violations and human rights defenders with, and for whom, we work. They also help us to better respond to the interests of our members, supporters and donors.

Case studies

The Strategy and Evaluation Unit carries out strategically chosen evaluations or case studies as part of its work to assess the impact of Amnesty International’s work. Our participatory approach includes the voices of those with whom and on whose behalf we work. These efforts are driven by our commitment to accountability and learning in order to improve the effectiveness and impact of our work. Evaluation findings and recommendations inform decision-making, strategy development and detailed planning.
