Amnesty International secretary general Salil Shetty said: ‘We look forward to working with him to drive forward high-impact campaigns and communications at a time when the fight for human rights around the world is so important to millions of people as they stand up against repression and injustice.’

Schultz-Jagow said he had admired Amnesty for ‘many years’, adding: ‘It will be a privilege to lead the merger of Amnesty International’s campaigns and communications work at a time when the organisation is focusing on growth in the global south.’
