The fact that AI not only survived, but thrived during the Cold War suggested that the manner in which it conducted itself was a recipe for success. By that time it was a Nobel Peace Prize winner, economically solvent and had earned an international reputation as a measured and reliable human rights INGO. It had earned a great deal of legitimacy in the area of human rights. AI’s self-management and widespread support for human rights worked together to create an organization which was both internationally relevant and influential.

AI also worked to maintain political impartiality by keeping victims of human rights abuse central to their efforts.
