The International Secretariat of Amnesty International needs a researcher to

About the role
*As a research-based campaigning organization, investigating and documenting

Our Balkans team requires a researcher to take the lead in initiating human
rights research and action on the region by providing country and thematic
expertise, excellent research skills and sound political judgement. Your
task will be to monitor, investigate and analyze political, legal and social
developments and human rights conditions, give authoritative advice on these

background in either activism, academia, law or journalism with the ability
to identify and thoroughly investigate those issues and ensure our voice has
authority.

impartial and think strategically. Fluency in written and spoken English and
at least one of Bosnian or Croatian, including excellent writing skills, is
essential.

*Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent,
international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom
and truth wherever they’re denied. Already our network of almost three
million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries. And
whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct
lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by
hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected
by everyone, everywhere.
