    DescriptionFounded in London in 1961 by a radical lawyer, Peter Berenson, Amnesty International is one of the most influential and respected non-governmental organizations in the world. Its story reflects the changing attitudes to political prisoners and human rights throughout the first and third worlds. Always controversial, Amnesty continues to question orthodoxies. Its struggle to free political prisoners goes on, but it also recognizes the need to fight for human rights in whatever form they are denied or abused.
