Amnesty International’s Integrated Strategic Plan (ISP) for 2004-2010 described a vision of a world in which everyone enjoys all of the Human Rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international Human Rights standards and laws.
The International Cluster of the International Secretariat of Amnesty International was central to the delivery of the strategic plan. The Secretary General (SG) instigated a change programme to ensure the strong integration of the cluster’s functions in all areas to enable their goals to be met.
The change programme was geared to achieve organisational and behavioural change, including:
- Team reorganisation – realigning the structure of the cluster to match the focus and ways of working now needed
- Decision making to build accountability – developing a culture of delegation to encourage decisions to be made, and owned, at the right level
