Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

Amnesty International’s European Institutions Office in Brussels coordinates and promotes lobbying of the European institutions. Our office aims to ensure that the European Union (EU) and Council of Europe (CoE) put human rights at the heart of all their policies. Amnesty International‘s specialists provide comment, background and analysis on the human rights implications of EU and CoE decisions, and monitor the institutions’ performance.
The European Institutions Office is at the heart of a wide-reaching advocacy network which includes the national branches of Amnesty International in EU and CoE member states and in countries which have applied to join these bodies.
To ensure its independence, Amnesty International does not seek or accept money from governments or political parties for its advocacy work. The Brussels office is funded by national Amnesty International branches across Europe.
The European Institutions Office is in regular contact with key EU policy-makers at the European Commission, the European Council, Permanent Representations of EU countries, and Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). In parallel with national sections across Europe lobbying their governments, our office engages with representatives of member states, including rotating EU presidencies, to influence EU agendas and outcomes. Similarly, at the Council of Europe, we have regular contact with policy-makers including the Commissioner for Human Rights, the Committee of Ministers, Parliamentary Assembly, and the European Court of Human Rights
The European Institutions Office works in partnership with other NGOs, and has an active media programme, issuing press releases and briefing the Brussels and Strasbourg press corps.
We focus on a range of European policies including:
• Human rights in EU and CoE member states and accession countries
• Human rights in EU foreign policy
• Security and human rights
• Asylum and refugee protection
• Migration policy
• Judicial and police cooperation
• Human rights and the arms trade
