Country and Thematic Specialist

Country/Thematic Specialists are part of a corps of volunteer leaders who serve as country or issue experts and strategists for Amnesty International USA. These specialists serve as a link between Amnesty’s primary research staff based abroad and the members and staff of the US branch of the organization. These specialists develop a solid understanding of Amnesty International’s concerns in the target country or issue, and may be called upon to represent the organization in relevant forums.

In collaboration with other volunteers and staff, Country/Thematic Specialists develop action strategies designed to bring about positive change in the human rights situation in the target country or issue. These strategies may involve rapid responses, media and social media engagement, US and foreign government advocacy, and collaboration with coalitions.

country & thematic specialist recruitment will launch in 2025 – stay tuned for more details
