Governments all around the world – from Sri Lanka to Russia; from India to Saudi Arabia – use the threat of terrorism to undermine human rights, often through torturing people, holding them without charge or trial, and making them ‘disappear’.
Amnesty International works to stop governments undermining rights in the name of national security or countering terrorism. It investigates and campaigns in three main areas: exposing those who allow unlawful detentions, enforced disappearances, torture and other ill-treatment; addressing the lack of accountability by States; and campaigning to protect the rights of the victims of terrorism and violence by armed groups.
