For more than 50 years Amnesty International has been a social movement that has created extraordinary social change. With threats to human rights lying at the heart of major challenges facing humanity, our ongoing ambition is to increase significantly our impact. This report, covering January 2012 – December 2013, is part of that ambition. It reports on our achievements and contribution to human rights impact and change. It aims to articulate the global breadth and depth of our work, to enhance our accountability and transparency, and to foster understanding of what can be achieved and how.
