Poverty and human rights

Everyone, everywhere has the right to live with dignity. That means that no one should be denied their rights to adequate housing, food, water and sanitation, and to education and health care.

AI is increasingly documenting how human rights violations drive and deepen poverty. People living in poverty have least access to power to shape the policies of poverty and are frequently denied effective remedies for violations of their rights.

AI is working to hold governments, big business and other powerful actors to account for human rights violations which target the poor, and which deepen poverty.
