Amnesty International (commonly known as Amnesty and AI) is a non-governmental organisation stated to be focused on human rights, with millions of members and supporters around the world. It focuses in particular on "prisoners of conscience", who are persons imprisoned or prevented from expressing their opinions in violation of freedom of expression.
The organization has a liberal/leftist outlook and supports ending the death penalty, decriminalizing abortion, minorities' and indigenous rights, protecting LGBT rights, social and cultural rights for marginalised communities, and the rights of refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers.
Its coverage of different countries has been criticized as biased compared to actual human rights abuses.
Another criticism is excessive pay for management.
