The State of Human Rights in Israel

June 11, 2018

Join Chen Brill Egri, a campaigner from Amnesty International Israel to hear about Amnesty's work in Israel including its work with refugees and human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Chen Brill Egri has been a Campaigner at Amnesty International Israel for three years. She worked exclusively on the asylum seekers campaign until 2018, and since then has also campaigned on Israeli-Palestinian discrimination, human rights violations at the OPT, and Israel's arms trade with countries that commit gross human rights violations.

In her work, Chen conducts research, writes position papers, reports, statements, lobbies the Knesset and Government, and works with the Israeli media and social media activism. Before joining Amnesty, Chen worked for Peace Now, an Israeli NGO against the occupation and pro two-state solution. She has also worked at other NGOs and government programs in different subjects.

Chen has been activist against the occupation and other human rights violations in Israel for many years. She has a BA in political science and MA in policy of education.
