Amnesty International is the social partner of Intreeweek this year. During this week you will therefore encounter us in different ways. If you are interested in issues such as racism, police violence, LGBTI rights and rights of refugees, have a look at the Amnesty page in the Intreeweek app to see how you can take action for human rights and as a student contribute to the work of Amnesty International.
Human rights for all
Amnesty International is committed to a world in which everybody enjoys their human rights, set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We are a global movement of over 7 million people fighting injustice. We are campaigning for justice, freedom, human dignity and equality in more than 150 countries. Our work protects and empowers people – from abolishing the death penalty to standing up for freedom of expression, and from protecting the rights of migrants and refugees to combating political violence and persecution.
Amnesty International & Students
The education programme of Amnesty the Netherlands regularly organises masterclasses for (HBO / WO) students. In these masterclasses, we each time discuss a different human rights issue such as: police violence, freedom of demonstration, business & human rights, rights of refugees or human rights defenders in Russia. The masterclasses are always interactive and offer space for discussion, asking questions, meeting other students and learning more about all the student opportunities with us. In addition to participating in a masterclass, you can also become a member of an Amnesty Student Group in e.g. Amsterdam. Would you like to work together with like-minded students, organise lectures, movie nights, action etc. and meet activists? Sign up here!
Join the movement!
We hope that during the Intreeweek, in addition to getting to know the student life of Amsterdam and other students, you also want to get to know us. We certainly want to meet you!
