Regional Director - East Africa

by Juma Mzuri  |  at  7:43 AM

Amnesty International has embarked on a global transition programme to ensure a more impactful and truly global presence for the movement. A movement that acts with greater legitimacy, speed, capacity and relevance as we stand alongside those whose rights are violated. We are adapting to a changing world by building on Amnesty International's 50+ years of ground-breaking achievements for justice and freedom. We believe that by deepening our work in new global offices, including in the global South, we will be even more in line with our mission and core values. Our activists and staff around the world will have increased direct and indirect contact with defenders, partners and human rights violations in different parts of the world with our IS staff "closer to the ground". As we build significant membership in the South, we will see international solidarity and democratic decision-making in full bloom. 
In the past few years we have opened Regional Offices in Dakar, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Mexico City, Lima, Beirut, Tunis with other locations to come.
