Amnesty International and the Police — Between Watchdog and Constructive Dialogue

  • Anja Bienert

Abstract

The article provides an overview over the evolution of the relationship and dialogue between Amnesty International and police agencies. Amnesty International — being an international human rights organisation whose endeavour is primarily to end violations of human rights — finds itself easily and almost naturally at an opposing side to law enforcement officials. However, departing from a rather antagonistic relationship at the very beginning there is now much more constructive dialogue taking place in many countries of the world.
