Thousands of people are in prison because of their beliefs. Many are held without charge or trial. Torture and the death penalty are widespread. In many countries men, women and children have "disappeared" after being taken into official custody. Still others have been put to death without any pretence of legality: selected and killed by the governments and their agents. The protection of human rights is an international responsibility, transcending the boundaries of nations and ideologies. This is the fundamental belief upon which the work of Amnesty International, an independent worldwide voluntary movement, is based. Amnesty International has an active worldwide membership with more than 1,100,000 individual members, subscribers and supporters in over 160 countries and territories. The movement is open to anyone who supports its goals.

www.asinet-online.org The Asian Social Institute (ASI) was established in 1962 by Rev. Dr. Francis Senden, cicm. Why was ASI founded? Ever since his arrival in the Philippines, at that time known to be the only Christian country in the Far East, he was struck by the widening gap between the rich and the poor. When the late Rufino Cardinal Santos, D.D., Archbishop of Manila, invited Fr. Senden to start an Asian Social Institute, he was hesitant realizing that already there were prestigious educational institutions offering master’s degrees in the social sciences. Yet, he could not deny that the Philippines was still longing for the Christian leaders who would commit themselves to address the great divide between the rich and the materially poor. He nevertheless decided to start a new social science graduate school.
