Nairobi, Kenya

For more than 50 years, we’ve been campaigning for human rights, wherever justice, freedom and truth are denied. We’ve reshaped policies, challenged governments and taken corporations to task. And in doing so, we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better. 

As Regional Advocacy Coordinator you will play a crucial role in the development, coordination and implementation of AI’s regional advocacy and lobbying activities throughout Africa.


Working closely with your peers in the regional office, you’ll monitor and analyse developments and advocacy opportunities within the African Intergovernmental bodies (including the African Union, African Commission, the Pan-African Parliament and NEPAD), and provide advice and reports on key developments. That means developing and maintaining effective and strategic working relationships with key stakeholders and civil society partners in the region through information sharing, coordination of advocacy and campaigning. Beyond that, you’ll produce analysis, policy briefs, submissions and other relevant outputs, including the identification of threats, opportunities, trends and geo-politics within the regional bodies relevant for AI advocacy priorities.
With extensive experience of advocacy and engagement with key the Africa IGOs, and strong knowledge of international relations, human rights law and humanitarian law, you already have the skills necessary to identify, analyse and exploit opportunities for influencing authorities on human rights issues in the region. Your proven political judgement, and relevant experience of research for advocacy purposes will ensure you are able to produce enhanced and systematic monitoring of regional bodies in Africa, and crucially - the consistent delivery of timely and sound political advice on trends, policies and advocacy opportunities.

Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. Already our network of more than three million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries. And whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations, human rights education, or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
