They are far from being outside their remit!
Amnesty International's vision is of a world in which
every person enjoys all of the human rights enshrined
in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other
international human rights standards.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Article 3.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security
of person.
