Welcome to Amnesty's Annual General Meeting 2023 april 28 - 30 in Tromsø. This site will be updated continuously with information about the AGM.


The Annual General Meeting is the highlight of the year for our organisation.At the AGM, members from all over the country gather to make decisions on Amnesty International Norway's work and priorities for the coming year, to influence the international movement, and to get inspired by the international guests.

A world without the death penalty - within reach

Amnesty International’s activists first started protesting the use of the death penalty at the end of the 70s. At that time, only 16 out of the world’s 149 countries had abolished the death penalty. Now, almost 50 years later the situation has turned – and nearly three quarters of the countries in the world has abolished the death penalty in law or practice. It is time to have a look back at the development over the last 50 years – and to look ahead at the work we still have left to do before we achieve a world free from the death penalty.

What is the Annual General Meeting?

The AGM is the members' main arena for decision making about what Amnesty should work with and how the organisation should be run. It is also a chance to meet other activists, get inspired and learn, with amazing guests from Norway and abroad.

As a member, you can propose motions and changes to the statutes. If you have an idea, discuss it with your group and contact your regional office.
