Masterclasses

Amnesty offers Masterclasses for students about various human rights issues. A Masterclass is usually a combination of a lecture and an interactive part, in which you’ll be put to work, through a case study. It’s is a great way to gain more knowledge about human rights, learn about your student opportunities at Amnesty and meet other students! Masterclasses are open to students working in different disciplines and will be held in English. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. For more information or requests, please contact student@amnesty.nl.

Write for Rights

When we all act together, we are more powerful. That is the driving force behind Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global campaign and the world’s biggest human rights event. Every year on 10 December, millions of individuals write letters & cards for people who are facing injustice. With success! People are freed, justice is served, and the world becomes a better place. YOU can also write a letter and change a life.
