About Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 10 million people who take injustice personally. We are campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Amnesty International is funded by members and people like you. We are independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. No government is beyond scrutiny. No situation is beyond hope.  Few would have predicted when we started that torturers would become international outlaws. That most countries would abolish the death penalty.

Building on the success of our International Justice in Africa Fellowship (2022-2023), we are proud to announce its second edition. The Fellowship seeks to enhance diversity of representation in the field of international justice by offering an opportunity to young African professionals (early to mid-career practitioners and scholars) based in Africa to work on international justice issues and mechanisms. Fellows benefit from knowledge, skills and experience transfer, practical exposure to international justice spaces and forums, and the opportunity to engage and network with a variety of relevant actors and stakeholders in the international justice movement. Fellows also participate in discrete research, legal analysis, policy discourse and campaigning projects relating to international justice.

Benefits of Amnesty International Justice In Africa Fellowship

Benefits include 37 days annual leave (inclusive of public holidays and grace days), pension scheme, employee assistance program, life assurance and many more benefits designed to suit your own personal lifestyle. All of this, in a professional, engaging environment.
