Trine Christensen

Secretary General of Amnesty Denmark

Trine Christensen has been Amnesty Denmark’s Secretary General since 2010. Before this, she worked in the United States of America as a Research Associate and Senior Researcher for the American section of Amnesty International. Her commitment for the Amnesty movement is clear in her dedication to both human rights for Danes and for those abroad. The past two years, Trine Christensen led internationally recognized research into rape in Denmark and the other Nordic Countries. Amnesty Denmark has been admittedly pursuing a change in the rape laws so to implement a consent-based legislation. Doing so, Christensen and Amnesty Denmark hope to lead by example for other developing nations aiming to mend the gap between men and women. This year, Amnesty International is increasing their focus on sustainability and climate change. Amnesty Denmark is now running the campaign “Go’ Stil” with the aim of putting pressure on businesses to become more sustainable
