Strategic Studies

For future human rights policy and practice.

Strategic Studies is an initiative of Amnesty International Netherlands. Since 2013 Strategic Studies has been mapping out national and international social, political and legal developments which can affect the future of human rights and the work of Amnesty International in particular.

Latest: Germany – Shifting Power and Human Rights Diplomacy

In our latest essay volume ten authors from German academia, think tanks and NGO’s write about Germany’s relations with other EU member states and rising powers like China and India. Also they focus on the impact on the country’s external human rights policies. Among the contributors to this volume are Ulrike Guérot (author off Warum Europa eine Republik werden muss! Eine politische Utopie), Katrin Kinzelbach (Global Public Policy Institute), Michael Krennerich (Friedrich Alexander University), Andrea Berg and Alexia Knappmann (both working at Amnesty Germany).
